The 2011 contest is open

The third Photographers Giving Back contest is now open for entries. Starting on the 25th of November which is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women ending on the 25th of january 2012.

INSPIRATION

The Photographers Giving Back Photo Award was founded in Sweden in 2008. The purpose of this event is to enhance journalistic photography and to strengthen the position for the professional photographer. It is also intended to inspire young and new photographers and get more people interested in photography.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Jonas Lemberg, a news photographer since 1991, started out with a wish to make a change and make the world a better place to live. Now, several years later, he has founded an organisation with a big wish to give something back; to the photographers who work hard covering events showing injustice around the world, and also to the people depicted in the photographs.

PHOTOGRAPHERS GIVING BACK

Many photographers, if not all, have a wish to be part in changing the world to a better place. So do we! That’s why we have started the Photographers Giving Back program. This program will give donations to causes which reflect the spirit of the contest.

Donations to The Giving Back program will be greatly appreciated and will be given out.
