Photo Competition – Exposure: The Oxfam Photography Prize for Women 2013

Share

We recently announced that we would be featuring a photo competition every single day within our brand new Competitions category – maximising the opportunities you have to enter great contests and not to miss them.

Today, we’re featuring Exposure: The Oxfam Photography Prize for Women 2013. Essentially, Oxfam is offering three emerging female photographers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to complete a commission for Oxfam’s spring fundraising campaign by entering the Oxfam Photography Prize for Women 2013.
In autumn 2013 Oxfam will commission three of Magnum Photos’ female photographers to document projects in Armenia, Chad and Sri Lanka. Three IdeasTap winners will join Oxfam project managers and the Magnum photographer (one winner per trip), helping Oxfam to tell the stories of women living in poverty worldwide.

Winners will follow the commission brief and produce a set of 100 images that highlight the difficulties faced by people living in poverty and the impact of Oxfam’s work, particularly showcasing the stories of women. Each commission will be accompanied by an on-site mentoring session by one of the commissioned Magnum photographers.

The images will be used by Oxfam in their fundraising communications in Spring 2014 and beyond, with potential for an exhibition alongside the work of the Magnum commissions.

This opportunity will provide young female photographers with a unique insight into the workings of an international NGO, and provide a connection to industry relationships. Winners will develop confidence and experience in relation to professional standards and practice, as well as producing a meaningful body of work that will raise awareness of global issues. They will also receive £1,000 each on completion of the assignment, once the photographs have been delivered to Oxfam.

This brief closes on Monday 9 September at 12pm (midday) and is open to female IdeasTap (you will find out more about this in the link above) members aged 18-25. If you have any technical queries, please visit our Help Centre. Late entries will not be accepted under any circumstances, including technical issues – so make sure you don’t leave your application to the last minute.
