Specifically, our qualified panel of judges will be looking for photos that are not only technically sound and creative, but clearly fit into one of the following categories:
1. Technology, Information & Participation – Photos should explore how technology helps citizens get the information, news and education they need to more fully participate in their own communities.
2. Improving Communities – Photos should explore how citizens mobilize to address important issues related to conflict, the environment, gender, etc.
3. Education & Employment – Photos should explore how education can prepare youth, women and others to participate in the workforce and improve the economic vitality of developing countries.
Judging: The panel of experts selected by Organizer will collectively select winners in the Grand Prize and Best of Category categories over two (2) rounds of evaluation. Qualified photos are defined as those completely complying with the Official Rules.
