GET INVOLVED, GET PUBLISHED AND WIN A GREAT PRIZE
Can you capture the best portrait of an inspirational elder from your hometown and tell their story in less than 50 words?
We are launching a little competition to all our Facebook and Twitter followers with a great prize from Nikon courtesy of Photo Technica. It could be your grandmother, the man on the street or Sri Lankabhimanya Dr Lester James Peries.
Get inspiration from the portraits of elders already featured on I Am. Entries will be judged on those who combine beautiful photography and a compelling story. New followers are welcome so if you know any budding photographers and storytellers spread the word!
The top ten winners will be featured on our Facebook page. The best five showcased on this page. And the overall winner will receive Rs 20,000 worth of vouchers from Photo Technica to spend on Nikon stuff.
The competition begins on 21 January 2013 and the closing date for submissions is 31 May 2013. So get storytelling!
Submissions will be judged by the I Am team, the staff at Photo Technica who is sponsoring the competition prize and the American Center, Colombo who is supporting the overall project.
