Calling all IdeasTap members!

IdeasTap have teamed up with Save the Children and Magnum Photos to give one lucky IdeasTap member the photography opportunity of a lifetime.
Right from the beginning, photography has been at the heart of Save the Children’s campaigns. Documenting real people, in their environment, and sharing their personal experiences with mass audiences, is key to the charity’s visual communications.
One applicant will win the opportunity to undertake an international photographic commission in Central America for Save the Children. The winner will be mentored during the trip by Magnum photographer Alex Webb and also win £1,000 from IdeasTap.  

All you need to do is submit a photo essay of five to 10 images, which documents a community and illustrates how its residents relate to their environment. The series must include at least one portrait, contextual images and be in colour. One winner will be selected by a panel of industry judges at the beginning of November. Judges include Alex Webb and Jess Crombie, head of visual creative for Save the Children. The judges are looking for a photographer with a strong sense of style and excellent technical ability. 

The assignment will take place sometime between 19 November and 5 December (only enter if you will be available to travel at this time). The purpose of this trip will be to gather stories that can be used in the media about how climate change is affecting children in the region.

Closing date Friday 24 October 2014 at 5pm BST
