FINAL CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS WORLDWIDE

 

DEADLINE: FRIDAY 29 APRIL, 5PM GMT

 

FINAL CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FROM DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHERS WORLDWIDE FOR PAID COMMISSIONS IN PAKISTAN, ZAMBIA, THE PHILIPPINES, ECUADOR, ZIMBABWE

 

Empowering Women Entrepreneurs Worldwide is an exciting photography project that highlights the work of Lendwithcare, an initiative of leading aid and development charity CARE International UK, which empowers entrepreneurs to work their way out of poverty with dignity through the provision of micro lending and business skills training. Lendwithcare enables people in the UK to uniquely connect with an entrepreneur in a developing country who needs a loan to support their small business.

 

The project will create powerful photo essays featuring inspiring women entrepreneurs in five of the countries where Lendwithcare operates: Pakistan, Ecuador, Zimbabwe, The Philippines and Zambia. The photo essays will provide an in-depth visual narrative focusing on how entrepreneurship provides positive and sustainable social change for individuals, families and communities generated by a cyclical financial model of micro lending.

 

Local professional documentary photographers will be commissioned to produce the photo essays, where possible, thereby engaging artists from within the countries themselves, leveraging their knowledge of local customs and language and reducing the need for international air travel.

 

The work will be used in campaigns by the core partners and key sponsors to promote the benefits of microfinance lending schemes which help some of the world’s poorest women. It is also intended that the work will be exhibited at a central London location, launching on International Women’s Day in March 2017.

 

DEADLINE IS FRIDAY 29 APRIL, 5PM GMT
