Capture An OFW Without Borders

In parallel to its forthcoming 2009 Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards, PEBA, Inc. launches a photo contest focused on the Global Filipinos which encourages the Filipinos abroad to show their passion for photography and their ability to see more than the ordinary Filipino Migrant Workers.

The contest encourages photos with spontaneity, clarity, composition and your ability to capture a distinctive moment of a Filipino abroad.

Entrants. The competition is open to all amateur Filipino photographers (above 18 years old) presently working as OFW in any part of the world. Participants can submit 3 entires but not more than 5 photos.

Entries. Photographs must be original images taken by the entrant and may not have been previously published.

Content. The photos shall be color or b/w photographs that represent or typify heroism, love, labor and courage of OFWs abroad (using the host country as part of their subject/s).

Digital image submissions. Image quality must be at least 8" x 10" at 300 DPI or a photo taken with a minimum of 3.2 megapixel camera at the largest image setting submitted through email using JPEG format.

Images that do not meet these criteria will not be considered. Photographs should be submitted without any borders or frames.

Each photo entry should have a file name of the photographer/owner, plus information, location, profession/work and small interpretation comes along in the email.
