Sinchi launches new photo competition to celebrate the strength and beauty of indigenous cultures.
Sinchi’s inaugural photography competition provides a unique opportunity for visual storytellers around the world to be recognised for their talent and commitment to the preservation of culture and indigenous rights.
The aim of the competition is to celebrate the strength and beauty of indigenous culture. This can be inspired from activism, relationship to nature, spirituality, community, everyday life to art, music and cultural practice. Participants are invited to submit up to 6 photos with accompanying captions, welcoming submissions from both remote and urban indigenous communities.
‘The challenge is for all of us to care enough about what lies outside our own world, so we can recover what is nearly lost’
The competition runs from 1st April to the 31st May. Entrants under the age of 18 must have permission from a legal guardian. Winners will be announced on the 15th August, 2017.
The cost is 10 euros per submission. However, if the cost is prohibitive, those wishing to a participant can email firstname.lastname@example.org and explain their circumstances and complimentary entry will be considered.
