PHOTO COMPETITION TO PORTRAY DIGITAL DIVIDE:
July 27, 2008 by IFEX
Iwith.org, an organisation dedicated to helping non-profits make the best use of technology, wants your pictures and holiday snaps for its Summer Photo Competition about the digital gap.
"We suggest that you take your camera on vacation and look around," Iwith.org says. "Surprise us with a photo that will make the web visitors to our site aware of the issue."
Iwith.org describes the digital gap as the distance between people (including communities, states and countries) who use information communication technologies in their daily lives and those who lack access to or don't know how to use the technologies.
Photographs that "capture this gap" don't need to be negative or show prejudice, but simply portray the gap's existence, says Iwith.org. Photographs selected in the 2007 competition can be seen at: http://www.iwith.org/album/FotosVerano07
The photographers whose photos are selected will be considered Iwith.org members for one year, until September 2009, and will have their snaps published on Iwith.org.
Entries should be submitted electronically by 1 September 2008. Competition rules and an entry form can be found at: http://www.iwith.org/news/en_US/1/2008/06/10/0003/
Competition Blog Comment:
Why a photo competition and why not a photo festival?
If we really want to do something good, why do we need firing our motivation with the spark that this petty sense of competition kindles in us?
The sense of competition always kills the spirit of festival in the heart.
Competition must kill the cooperation and appreciation in our aesthetic experience as well as in our interaction with one another.
I will tell you what the digital gap between the digitally connected and the unconnected communities is.
The connected ones understand the language of clicks and 2-D screens only, which gives them an illusory notion that they are really connected.
But since they are NOT, they need the spark of competition to do any action with passion.
Not so with the unconnected ones, since the spark comes from the face to face interaction that they have with their limited world in their vicinity only.
At least they are really connected and are not under any illusion like the so-called connected ones are!
