The Oxfam Photography Prize for Women 2013
In autumn 2013 Oxfam will commission three of Magnum Photos’ female photographers to document projects in Armenia, Chad and Sri Lanka. Three IdeasTap winners will join Oxfam project managers and the Magnum photographer (one winner per trip), helping Oxfam to tell the stories of women living in poverty worldwide.
Winners will follow the commission brief and produce a set of 100 images that highlight the difficulties faced by people living in poverty and the impact of Oxfam’s work, particularly showcasing the stories of women. Each commission will be accompanied by an on-site mentoring session by one of the commissioned Magnum photographers.
Three female photographers will win the opportunity to complete a commission for Oxfam’s spring fundraising campaign, including an expenses-paid trip to either Armenia, Chad or Sri Lanka, mentoring from a Magnum photographer and £1,000, funded by IdeasTap.
The winners will be informed before Friday 20 September 2013.
The judges will look for applicants who can tell a story through images, as well as originality, intimacy with the subject and good technical ability. Strong communication skills are a must.
Submit 10-20 photographs that tell a story. Enter digital photos via the website.
