LONDON, FEBRUARY 27 – Survival International – the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights – announced its fourth worldwide photography competition aiming to celebrate photography as a powerful medium for raising awareness of tribal peoples, their unique ways of life and the threats to their existence.
Both amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to enter.
The theme this year is tribal conservationists. “We’re looking for images that show tribal peoples in their natural environment, as the best conservationists and guardians of the natural world to support Survival’s “Stop the Con!” campaign”, the organization stated on its website.
The judging panel includes Survival’s Director Stephen Corry, Survival Italy Coordinator Francesca Casella, The Little Black Gallery Co-Founder Ghislain Pascal, Max Houghton, Senior Lecturer in Photography at the London College of Communication and award-winning photographer Edmund Clark.
The twelve winning entries will be published in Survival’s 2018 calendar, with the overall winner’s image featuring on the cover. All submitted photographs must have been taken in the last 10 years. The closing date for entries is April 30, 2017.
Two Italian photographers, Giordano Cipriani and Luigi Repetto, were selected among the 12 winners last year. All entry details at www.survivalinternational.org/
