Child Welfare Competition with Vega

Vega Pretoria is joining forces with Child Welfare Tshwane (CWT) in running a photography competition to raise awareness of the plight of the most vulnerable in our communities.

In brief, the competition is aimed at raising awareness through the photographic medium, of child welfare issues in and around the City of Tshwane, although I am certain you will agree that these are fairly universal.

The competition is open in two categories:

Pupils and students: R100 per entry
Adults: R250 per entry

An entry is limited to 3 three images.

Entries will open from 12 April and will close on 21 May.

2nd year students at Vega Pretoria will be the judges of the competition (as part of a formal critiquing project).

The images will go on display at the Brooklyn Mall during the Child Protection Week (30 May-4 June), with the competition winners being announced on Saturday 4 June at the exhibition.
