The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) and PhotoPhilanthropy are excited to announce the World Fights AIDS Photo Contest on Instagram. They are seeking photos from across the globe that resonate with the mission of EGPAF, the global leader in the fight to end AIDS.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation isn’t only fighting AIDS, they are changing the way the world fights AIDS. They work hand-in-hand with governments, partners, mothers, families, volunteers and donors toward a health and social infrastructure that can end HIV/AIDS – and keep it eliminated.
Your assignment: Every community across the world has at least one unsung hero or grassroots organization working to eradicate this epidemic or ease the suffering of those who live with it. Share a photograph on Instagram of a group or individual in your community who is fighting against HIV/AIDS. Tag it with #WorldFightsAIDS and your photo will automatically be entered into the contest. Please also tag @photophilanthropy and @egpaf. The winning photographer will receive the Grand Prize of $1,000 USD.
All entries must include a caption that tells a short story about the person, people or subject matter in your photograph. Where was it taken? Who is in the photo? How are they fighting against stigma? How are they working to end HIV/AIDS?
After submitting a photo, contestants are encouraged to search other submissions using the #WorldFightsAIDS hashtag and like and leave comments on other photos that are not their own.
Deadline for entries is August 11, 2014.
