World Reconstruction Conference 2 Photo Contest

WRC-2-Web-site-logo-01 The World Bank Group is seeking photographs for the World Reconstruction Conference 2 Photo Contest, that illustrate resilient recovery in communities that have been impacted by natural disasters. The winning photographs will be featured during the second World Reconstruction Conference at the World Bank Group headquarters in Washington, D.C. A grand prize winner will receive a gift certificate for $1,000 in photography gear.

What is resilient recovery? As population growth and climate change are on the rise, the frequency of natural disasters is increasing — and the world’s most fragile communities are especially vulnerable. A typhoon, flood, earthquake or drought can reverse economic growth and prevent a community from achieving sustainable poverty reduction. Yet in the aftermath of a disaster, governments and citizens have a unique opportunity to build back stronger, more resilient communities.

Resilient recovery can take many forms: community empowerment, disaster-resistant schools and infrastructure, technological and green innovations, and risk assessment. Be creative and showcase strength — and not only destruction — following natural disaster.

1. Each person may submit up to five entries.

2. All photographs must be your original work.

3. Photographs must be submitted in high-resolution digital format.

4. Include your full name, country of origin, and a short caption describing the subject and location (25 words maximum) in the photo description (geotagging is encouraged).

Participants must be at least 18 years old. Employees (or immediate family members of employees) of GFDRR or the World Bank Group are not eligible for the grand prize. A panel of World Bank Group staff will judge the contest. All entries may be used by the World Bank Group in print or online media, with attribution to the photographer.
