Attention all globetrotting photographers, budding and established: Little Black Gallery is once again supporting Survival International’s second annual call for entries into its photographic competition. The criteria? That the images should capture tribal people from across the world, many of whom are fighting for survival on a daily basis. The aim? To raise awareness of their daily lives, plight and the threats to their very existence.
Last year’s winning image by Girodano Cipriani, shown here, depicts an Asurini do Tocantins Indian in the Brazilian Amazon. This year, the judges (including Survival Director Stephen Corry and Little Black Gallery co-founder, Ghislain Pascal) continue to seek work of similar, moment-capturing glory in one of three categories: ‘Guardians’, revealing tribespeople as the guardians of nature; ‘Community’ depicting family life and relationships within the tribes; and ‘Survival’, showing the diversity of life in a tribe.
The 12 winning images will be shown in Survival International’s 2016 calendar. The closing date is 30 April, 2015.
