The Academic Challenge that is going to give ₹400K to the photo that best represents the women’s struggle for Women’s Empowerment
What is it about?
The PhotoChallenge is an university challenge that has among its main objectives to promote debate and reflection on themes relevant to society, stimulating student engagement in projects that use photography as the main form of social, political and cultural expression. The theme we’ve chosen this years is Girl Power.
The quest for women’s empowerment is a daily battle waged by millions of women around the world, aiming, among other things, to establish equity and gender equality, giving women the power of participation and decision-making in all spheres in the society.
The challenge for undergraduates and graduate students from all over India is to represent this struggle through a photograph. The photos submitted will be evaluated and judged by a committee that will take into account criteria such as originality, creativity and appropriateness to the theme.
The winning photo receives a cash prize of ₹400K (four hundred thousand rupees), of which ₹200K goes for the author of the photo and ₹200K will be donated to one of the NGOs supporting the contest, chosen by the winner.
Entries for PhotoChallenge will be until 30/11/2017 and must be done exclusively on the official contest website: see more information.
