In one of my previous posts, I shared tips on taking breastfeeding photographs. My husband has realized the importance of preserving these memories and encourages nursing moms (who go to his studio for photoshoots) to include breastfeeding photographs. I'm pleased to report that there have been an increasing number of moms who are receptive to the idea of being photographed while nursing their babes and he has amassed quite a number of photographs.
So I'm certainly happy to see that one of the events for World Breastfeeding Week 2010 is a photography contest. C, my partner in crime in organizing our breastfeeding awareness festival, received an email from WABA with the mechanics on how to join this contest:
World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) 2010 Photography Contest
Feature your breastfeeding photos in this year’s Action Folder! WABA is organising a global breastfeeding photography contest for WBW 2010. Ten winning photos will be selected, and contributors whose photos are featured in the WBW Action Folders, Posters and Banners will be awarded US$100 for each published photo.
What are we looking for?
We need stories that illustrate Baby-Friendly not only in hospitals but also in wider health care system – health centres, primary care, and communities. We are looking for any photo that TELLS A STORY of breastfeeding and the 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.
When taking photos, think globally and locally! We encourage you to submit photos that reflect different ethnicity and that include breastfeeding children, from a newborn to a child of 2 years or more.
Understanding on the issue would help you take a great picture! Please read the WBW 2010 Calendar Announcement at www.worldbreastfeedingweek.org for more information.
All submissions must be completed together with the contest form which is also available on the WBW 2010 website.
All entries must be submitted by 15 April 2010 to this email.
