CGAP photo contest - submit your pictures before 15 October!

9 September, 2014

The 2014 CGAP Photo Contest is open for entries. Use your imagination to capture the diversity and dynamics of microfinance and financial inclusion from all over the world. Submit your entries before 15 October 2014! 

"CGAP is looking for photos that illustrate the remarkable ways access to a variety of financial services, such as savings, insurance, payments, and credit, can help poor people manage their complex financial situations. Mobile financial services are one tool millions of poor people use to enhance their lives, but they are not the only option. Community-based savings groups, small enterprises, and microfinance are other examples of financial inclusion in action. Submissions to the CGAP Photo Contest may represent a range of products, institutions, and approaches, and may touch on a broad variety of social, economic, developmental, and technological issues. Entries are welcomed from all regions, in both rural and urban settings.

Past winners have included stunning and creative images that have been shared with organizations working in financial inclusion and global media. The 2013 contest was the most competitive to date, with 3,890 entries from over 90 countries. Last year’s winning photos received excellent exposure globally and were featured in the online galleries by BBC Mundo, BBC Vietnam, Huffington Post, and Business Insider to name a few.

Many prizes will be issued in 2014, including a first, second, and third prize, as well as a People’s Choice winner determined by popular vote.

Help us show the world, through photography, how financial inclusion can improve the lives of the poor by submitting your photos and sharing this announcement with your networks. Submit your photos today and share the contest announcement with your networks."
