Latin American Documentary Contest of Photography
Theme: “The works and the days”
The theme of the photographs should focus on human beings (regardless of age, sex, or race) carrying out some form of work or occupation. Additionally, pictures could show the human presence through objects or materials; buy the jury will decide on the appropriateness of these concepts. As we are predominantly interested in Latin American workers, we also invite artists to send their photographs that document the social and working conditions of Latin American immigrants in developed countries. As well as those people that migrates between countries in Latin America.
