Re: Oxfam photo contest awards travel grant [Worldwide]

Deadline: 26/09/11

Photographers can enter an international competition.

"Click About It" is a series of international photography competitions organized by the European Journalism Centre. The third edition, co-organized with Oxfam and sponsored by the European Commission, offers the first-place winner a trip to an Oxfam project. 

The competition focuses on the topic of "aid." In this competition, photographers are asked to capture moments that show how people's lives and communities are being transformed. Whether in Berlin or Bogota, tackling poverty, health, education, gender, environment and agricultural issues -- photographers should use creativity to illustrate the concept.

Each contestant can upload a maximum of eight entries to the competition platform but they must be added at the same time.

First place wins a trip to an Oxfam project and the three runner-ups each win a EU€500 (about $700) Amazon gift certificate. A selection of photographs will be published in various Oxfam publications.
