Help build new powerful #activistphoto collection!

Critical Information Collective’s first international photography competition is now open for entries. Help us build and share a powerful collection of #activistphoto images from around the world by entering your best images.

There are four themes in this year’s competition, focusing on Buen Vivir, climate change, energy justice and food sovereignty. Winning images will be exhibited in Paris during the climate change negotiations later this year, and we’ve got a great panel of judges too. You can find out more here.

We’re looking forward to seeing your photos! We aim to work with activists and photographers around the world. Together we can build a great campaign communications tool that can be used by us all.

Everybody’s welcome to participate, and there are separate categories for activists/communities and professional photographers. Many organisations and activists already have great campaign photos, but they are often hidden away on computers, perhaps having been used once or twice for campaign materials. CIC’s image library and photo competition are your chance to share these images with the rest of the world. Collectively we can give new visibility to our movements and campaigns!
