The Other Hundred: Open Call for Submissions

21st Mar 2013

The Other Hundred

You’ve seen list after list of the world’s richest. More than likely, you’ve likewise encountered media showcasing the hardships of those suffering conflict, poverty and famine. But what about the people who compose the majority of the world’s population – those who live rich, multi-faceted lives, but may not be found amongst the world’s most prosperous?

The Other Hundred project seeks to highlight the stories of individuals around the world who, while not falling into one of these extremes, live rich, full lives.

An initiative of the Hong Kong-based Global Institute for Tomorrow, The Other Hundred project is holding a call for entries through 1 April 2013 for photographers seeking to tell the stories of individuals who fall among this group. Submissions may be a single photograph or up to ten images accompanied by 50-250 words explaining the photos’ subject. Desirable images should capture the subject’s story, context, actions or surroundings.

Judged by panellists Ruth Eichhorn, Richard Hsu and Stephen Wilkes, the winning entries will be published in a photo-book later this year. Selected photographers will receive a copy of the hardbound book and a US$300 honorarium.

Photographers of all levels are encouraged to submit their works for free, and there is no limit to the number of entries per photographer.
