- Document 2010: War on Want Photographic Award
21 January 6:30 pm
War on Want's Document Photography Award was launched to encourage new photographers to engage with the subject of poverty. War on Want has shortlisted submissions from students all over the world who have examined the issue of poverty in a number of settings, from council estates in the UK to the homeless in Russia, the slums of Kenya to the unemployed youth in British towns.
Making global poverty relevant to UK audiences has always been a challenge. Yet the global meltdown has uncovered just how interdependent our world has become – the choices made in one country will affect lives in another. Perhaps more than any other group, photographers are best positioned to visualise and present these connections. This award will allow young photographers to make these connections real.
Since its founding in 1951, War on Want has been at the forefront of the fight against global poverty. War on Want supports projects around the world that help people to a better life and campaigns in the UK and Europe for fairer economic structures and more just development policies.
This exhibition is on from 21-28 January at HOST gallery.
