A call for entries: Photographic images reflecting human rights and globalization from around the world. Leading up to the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in Bonn from June 20-22, Germany’s international broadcaster is calling for entries for its worldwide photo competition. ”Klick! – Your View of Human Rights and Globalization” will focus on photographic images that highlight human rights and globalization around the world. DW will publish the submitted photos online in a virtual atlas at http://www.dw-gmf.de/klick_competition/. The website also offers more information about the competition and banners to download. Human rights and globalization always share one focus: people. That’s why DW is looking for photos with situations involving people for this competition. Photos and a brief description need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by April. 20. The online voting process will begin on April 25 to select the final 30, which will be exhibited at the Global Media Forum in Bonn. The approximately 1,500 Global Media Forum participants and guests will then select three winners from the 30 in the exhibition. These three winners will receive an iPod Nano (8 GB), an iPod Shuffle (2 GB) and a USB stick (4 GB). The three-day conference – the fourth in this series of events – will examine “Human Rights in a Globalized World – Challenges for the Media”. Partners of the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2011 include the OSCE, the Council of Europe, Amnesty International, the Friedrich-Naumann Foundation, the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation, the German Institute for Human Rights, Reporters Without Borders, UN Water, the European Council on Foreign Relations, European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the German Development Institute, CARE Germany-Luxemburg, the Development and Peace Foundation, the Bonn International Centre for Conversion (BICC), the Goethe-Institut and many other organizations. Six of this year’s partners have been included in the University of Pennsylvania’s list of 50 leading think tanks. DW will also be awarding the winners of its international blog awards, The BOBs, at this year’s Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum.
