MIT Legatum Center 2nd Annual Photo Contest
The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship at MIT invites amateur and professional photographers from around the world to enter our 2nd Annual Photo Contest.
The Legatum Center was founded on the belief that economic progress and good governance in low-income countries emerge from entrepreneurship and innovations that empower ordinary citizens. In contrast with images that show only the most devastating aspects of life in low-income countries, we look for photos that capture stories of entrepreneurial activity and demonstrate innovation and empowerment.
We believe that entrepreneurship, coupled with the use of transformative technologies such as mobile phones and computers, has the power to create real progress from the bottom up. By sharing your photos, you can help us present a new vision for development – one that is more dignified, one that is more optimistic, and one that inspires action.
This year’s theme is Women’s Entrepreneurship: Empowerment through Innovation. We are looking for photos that showcase women in developing countries engaging in entrepreneurial activities and using technology such as mobile phones or devices. The international contest is open to all photographers globally, and in addition aims to spotlight photographers from India, Kenya, and Mexico.
The contest will be judged by a panel of experts in photography and international development and entrepreneurship. Four winners will receive $500 each, be announced at the Legatum Center’s Annual Conference in October, and have their photos featured on the Center’s website. The deadline for submissions is September 13, 2009, 5 pm EST.
