Save the Children Photography Commission

Save the Children Photography Commission Save the Children Photography Commission is the photography opportunity of a lifetime being offered to one IdeasTap member. IdeasTap, Save the Children and Magnum Photos have teamed up to create this amazing opportunity.

Right from the beginning, photography has been at the heart of Save the Children’s campaigns. Documenting real people, in their environment, and sharing their personal experiences with mass audiences, is key to the charity’s visual communications.

One applicant will win the opportunity to undertake a paid international photographic commission in Central America for Save the Children under the guidance of Magnum photographer Alex Webb. This is a mentoring opportunity aimed at emerging photographers aged 18-30.

The assignment will take place sometime between 19 November and 5 December and the selected photographer will be paid £1000. The purpose of this trip will be to gather stories that can be used in the media about how climate change is affecting children in the region.

Applicants should submit a photo essay of five to 10 images, which documents a community and illustrates how its residents relate to their environment. The series must include at least one portrait, contextual images and be in colour. One winner will be selected by a panel of industry judges at the beginning of November.

Only apply for this brief if you are available to travel on assignment from 19 November to 5 December 2014.

The judges are looking for a photographer with a strong sense of style and excellent technical ability.
