At any given time, we are responding to over 30 emergency situations. We provide life-saving essentials in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster and to people affected by conflict, as well as long-term development support. You can help.
A few months ago I wrote about a new photography competition that Oxfam was involved with, partnering with the good people over at European Journalism Centre. Now, I’m delighted to be able to write again – announcing some winners!
We asked people to take images around the idea of AID. Primarily we wanted people to use their own skill and creativity to capture interesting and moving images. And hundreds of them certainly did that!
We set a couple of points of guidance:
- How “aid” is changing the local community;
- What kinds of activities and campaigns in developed countries are being carried out to “aid” the less/least developed world.
But I was really interested to see what the global community of photographers came back with. It was difficult to pick winners in amongst so many great entries. Larry Louie ‘Helping the disadvantaged help themselves’ (above) was judged in first place. Check out some of the photos below.
And in the coming months keep an eye out as we’ve got some exciting plans for what we do with the amazing images that were shot.
