Homeless To Participate In Photo Contest – http://wp.me/p5DwgX-1jP
I like the idea but they really need to pay participants more than just a $10 gift card and a backpack of toiletries. They are producing the photographs that will be the center of a huge fundraising campaign, standard freelancing rates…or at least minimum wage…should apply.
Photographers will have seven days to tell their story through photographs before returning the camera to a drop-off location. They will receive a t-shirt with ‘photographer’ emblazoned on the back, a $10 gift card for food and a backpack of toiletries for their participation in the project.
A team of community judges will then select the top 20 photos that will be displayed at the St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre from June 29-August 20. Visitors will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite photo with a donation.
