CBC's #IndigenousEyes photo contest for aboriginal youth now accepting submissions that focus on elders

#IndigenousEyes photo contest puts lens on aboriginal elders

CBC's photo contest for aboriginal youth now accepting submissions that focus on elders

CBC is launching its #IndigenousEyes photo contest, and this year the lens is focused on the role of elders in aboriginal communities.

Lisa Charleyboy, the editor of Urban Native Magazine, will join me and CBC's Gloria Macarenko on the judging panel to choose a winner for the photo contest.

For Charleyboy, the role of elders in aboriginal communities came into focus in 2013, when she took part in an indigenous writing residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.

There she met Pahan Pte Ste Win, a Lakota woman from Winnipeg. She asked Pte Ste Win for guidance on her writing, and the two hit it off.

"She had mentioned that she was interested in adopting me, so we did a formal adoption ceremony as we closed the residency," she said.

National Geographic: The Last Roll of Kodachrome





The End of an Era: Steve McCurry and the Final Roll of Kodachrome Film
National Geographic: The Last Roll of Kodachrome
In 2009, when Kodak announced that production of Kodachrome film would be coming to an end, legendary photographer Steve McCurry saw an opportunity, and asked if the company would give him the final roll. Given his reputation and the many famed photographs he’s taken on Kodachrome, it’s no surprise Kodak said yes.
As a tribute to this final roll, a crew from National Geographic decided to follow McCurry and document the momentous last 36 frames that would ever be shot on that film — the video above is the result.
