REPOST FROM @photophilanthropy:
“Today we are excited to announce the #WorldFightsAIDS Photo Contest on @Instagram with a Grand Prize of $1,000. A partnership with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (@egpaf). We are seeking photos from across the globe that resonate with the mission of EGPAF, the global leader in the fight to end AIDS.
Your assignment: Every community across the world has at least one unsung hero or grassroots organization working to eradicate this epidemic or ease the suffering of those who live with it. Share a photograph on Instagram of a group or individual in your community who is fighting against HIV/AIDS. Tag it with #WorldFightsAIDS and your photo will automatically be entered into the contest. Please also tag @photophilanthropy and @egpaf. The winning photographer will receive the Grand Prize of $1,000 USD. See contest details and Submission Guidelines at http://photophilanthropy.org/worldfightsaids
All entries must include a caption that tells a short story about the person, people or subject matter in your photograph. Where was it taken? Who is in the photo? How are they fighting against stigma? How are they working to end HIV/AIDS?
