Are you under the age of 30 and like taking pictures? The Tamarack Institute for Community Engagement is putting together a photo show to help explain what engaged youth are thinking and seeing in their communities. They believe there is going to be a big transition in the coming decade, and the impact of climate change is by far the most critical challenge. But, so is inequity and the perceived lack of opportunity, social disconnection, and disengaged youth. They want you to show your fears and hopes, but, also want you to tell what your community is going to look like in 2030. Your photos can be artistic impressions, or can be landscapes. They can be portraits or action shots. They can be originals, or computer enhanced. We want them to be raw. Show what your community will look like 10 years from now, both the good and the bad.
They plan to select 10 – 12 pictures and will print the in various sizes as part of our gallery show. If your photo is selected you will receive $500. They also plan to select 20 – 50 pictures for a slide show that will be shown in the gallery during “performance nights”. If your photo is selected as a part of these 20 you will receive $20. In addition to a photo, please submit a description of no more than 30 words explaining why your photo is a representation of what you think your community will look like in 2030, this should also include a title. The deadline for entries is February 12, 2020.
