Some of you might remember Ruth Eichhorn who was one of the participants in Chobi Mela VII. Ruth is one of the jury members for “The Other Hundred” contest. Here is some information on the contest.
Dear Shahidul ,
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to follow-up on our earlier invitation to you to participate in a unique non-profit photography project called The Other Hundred.
The Other Hundred is a counterpoint to the Forbes 100, Bloomberg Billionaires list and the countless other rich-lists that are constantly making headlines and filling newsstands. This global non-profit project will be a collection of photo essays from world-class photographers and photojournalists from across the globe highlighting the world’s Other Hundred – those people who aren’t among the world’s rich, but whose lives deserve to be celebrated. We very much admire your work and hope you are interested in participating.
In light of the large number of submissions we have been receiving in the final weeks of the open call – from over 600 participants in 100 countries – the submission deadline has been specially extended to April 15th2013 to ensure all professional committed participants sufficient time to get their entries in. We hope that the extra time will allow you to participate.
The competition is free to enter and entries will be judged by our world-renowned jury composed of Ruth Eichhorn, Richard Hsu and Stephen Wilkes. Those selected will have their work published in a large-format, hard-cover book, in addition to receiving an honorarium of US$300.
We are also pleased to announce that The New York Times / International Herald Tribune has agreed to be The Other Hundred’s official media sponsor and that the project was featured on BBC World News.
Additional details of this project can be found at http://www.theotherhundred.
If you happen to submit or commit to submit to our project previously, please forgive our duplicated efforts. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
Hope you enjoy a great Easter holiday!
