[creative-radio] Humanizing Development, Global Photography Campaign

 

Humanizing Development
Global Photography Campaign

How do you see development? How can you portrait the human face of the
development processes? How do you show that development initiatives and
programmes improve the lives of people? This Global Photography Campaign
aims to show examples of people winning the battle against poverty, social
exclusion and marginalization. It is intended to raise awareness of the
successes in the development process. The campaign is intended to
counterbalance the frequently shown images of desolation and despair. A
photo gallery will to be permanently located at IPC-IG office and open for
public visitation. A series of photo exhibitions will also be organized in
several cities around the world. Everyone can and is strongly encouraged
to participate in this global effort and contribute with a photograph.
Join us now in showing development through a different lens! Let's promote
and share successful development initiatives!

Who can participate?

Everyone can contribute with a photograph: professional and
non-professional photographers, students, civil society activists,
government officials, UN staff members and so forth.

How will the selection take place?

The Selection Committee will choose the 50 favourite photographs that best
depict the campaign themes to compose our photo gallery. Results will be
released on IPC-IG website on 30 October 2009.

The Committee will be composed of one representative from IPC-IG; one UNV
representative from headquarters in Bonn; a professional photographer with
international reputation; a representative from a partner institution
based in Africa, one in Asia and the Pacific, one in the Arab States and
another in Europe and the CIS

What happens if my picture is selected?

If your photo is chosen you will be contacted no later than 30 October
2009 by the IPC-IG. As a reward, your contribution to this campaign and
your effort in supporting its goals will be acknowledged by a wide
dissemination of your work through a range of UN communications tools:

The selected photographs and the respective contributors' names will be
highlighted in various UN communications channels, such as IPC-IG and UN
media campaigns, releases, websites and so forth.

The selected photograph will be part of UNDP and IPC-IG photo databases
and will be shared with the United Nations Department of Public
Information in New York, promoting global visibility to contributors,
their work and participation in the global campaign.

Contributors will receive a certificate jointly issued by the UNDP
International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth and the campaign
partners.

Contributors will have their names displayed at the IPC-IG photo gallery
on "Humanizing Development", which will be launched at a public event on
November 2009.

Photo exhibitions are to be organised in order to highlight the
photographs and the contributors and to promote the campaign goals.
