Carnegie Council International Student Photo Contest 2014

Carnegie Council International Student Photo Contest 2014

Deadline: October 31, 2014

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is now accepting entries for its second annual International Student Photography Contest. The contest is part of Ethics for a Connected World, a three-year global education project in celebration of the 2014 Carnegie Council Centennial. Students everywhere can take part in this project by submitting photography that depicts the concept of fairness (or its opposite) in their society.

In a world with huge gulfs of wealth and power, how do we ensure that everybody has access to opportunity? Carnegie Council believes that part of the answer lies in fairness—the means by which a society balances the rights and responsibilities of its citizens, toward each other and toward the state.

The contest will be conducted on Carnegie Council’s Global Ethics Network, our social media platform for exploring the role of ethics in international relations. Check out last year’s winners on the theme of Living with Differences, and see below for details on how to participate.
