The competition, which is free to all, offers an opportunity for photographers to exhibit their work and demonstrate their commitment to human rights issues. Submission deadline is December 31, 2010, with notification of selected photos & multimedia projects on February 1, 2011.
For the 2011 edition of the Anthropographia Call for Entries, 16 photo-essays and 8 multimedia projects will be selected out of all entries submitted.
