WACC annual photo competition launched

By Teresia Mutuku, Communications Officer and Web Manager, WACC

The WACC Photo competition 2010 has been launched. The
competition, in its seventh year, is being run on Flickr  for the fifth  time!

This year?s theme is Communication and Poverty. Poverty includes
communication poverty. Stronger voices of people living in poverty
lead to better understanding and action aimed at tackling injustice
and inequality. With open access to information and knowledge, poor
communities can work towards a better future. Images should focus on
communication helping to overcome poverty; tearing down communication
barriers; having a voice and being heard.

Photos must be loaded on Flickr. If you do not have an account on
Flickr, you need to create one by following this link? and then join
the competition.

Winners of the competition will be awarded cash prizes. There will be
one first prize and five commendations. The first prize is $500 and
each commendation will be awarded $200.

The closing date is 1 May 2010. The competition winners will be
announced later in May.

This popular event brings together hundreds of photographers from
around the world with each photo on the subject of communication. Last
year?s theme was Portraying Gender. The winning photo was submitted by

Sudipto Das, a photojournalist from Calcutta, India. The photo
features rural women in West Bengal, India, taking part in a
traditional boat race, challenging male members of the village. The
race was traditionally dominated by men.
