The Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) is launching an African photographic competition around the OpenForum called OPENPhoto that will be hosted by the four Open Society Africa Foundations in Cape Town from May 22-May 24, 2012
The OPENPhoto award will recognize photographers based in Africa whose work highlights how inequality plays itself out within the parameters of MONEY, POWER and SEX.
The OPENPhoto Award aims to encourage analytical and critical thinking about society in Africa through the prism of inequality. We are looking for strong, interpretive documentary work that has a voice.
The winner and three runners-up, selected by an international jury, will be exhibited at the conference, as well as online. The photos will also be used in a special Openspace journal/book on inequality.
Winners will be announced on April 25, 2012.
