A couple months ago I did a photo essay here at Hope for the Sold, themed Vulnerability. I received some fantastic photos and am excited to do a second one with a new theme! If you like photography and want to sumbit a photo, here are the details:
Theme: Resilience. Keep in mind that this is a blog about sex trafficking, so I am looking for photos that portray resilience in reference to that (ie. a picture of a soccer match victory probably would not be what I’m looking for!).
Your picture can be self explanatory, metaphorical, abstract, or anything in between. If you are an artist and wish to submit a photo of your piece of art, those are welcome as well.
Submission limit: Up to 2 photos per person.
The deal: Your photos will be posted on the HFTS blog, along with your name and website or blog if you have one. I am giving away one signed copy of Invisible Chains: Canada’s Underground World of Human Trafficking by Benjamin Perrin. Each photo submission will receive an entry into the draw. When the post goes up, readers will be asked to comment on what their favourite photo is and why. Each person who comments will also have their name entered into the draw.
Why a photo essay? Because I can write all I want, but sometimes it is a picture that truly resonates with a person and moves them to action.
If you’d like to make a submission, let me know in one of the following ways:
- Commenting under this post
- Sending a message to me via the contact section with the subject title: Resilience
I will then contact you with a couple more details. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Know any friends who love taking pictures? Make sure to send this their way too!
