The Swiss Malaria Group hosts an online photo contest
15 February 2013
Malaria affects the lives of millions across the world. The Swiss Malaria Group* online photo contest seeks to highlight the realities of those living at risk of malaria and the work of those dedicated to changing that reality.
The contest is open to all. Send in your photos and captions that tell a story about malaria between 15 February and 24 March via the competition website, where you will find details of the three submission categories. The public will then vote to determine the finalists and a panel of expert judges will select the winners.
The lucky winners – fifteen photographers from around the world – will be announced on the 22nd of April at the “Malaria Vaccines for the World” Conference in Lausanne. The winners of each category will receive a brand new Fuji camera plus CHF 400. There are also a series of cash prizes to be given away to 2nd - 5th place. In addition, the winning photographs will be posted in an online exhibition for the world to see in time for World Malaria Day on the 25th of April.
Have you got a photo that can tell a story about malaria? Then send it in!
