The contest will highlight photography’s vital role in capturing the realities and impact of pneumonia worldwide. It focusses attention on the devastating impact of pneumonia, a disease that claims the lives of 2 million children under five each year. Photos will be judged on the basis of content (relevance to category) and technical quality (e.g. lighting, composition, focus) by an independent panel of judges for cash and camera prizes.
