The World Bank’s program on inequality includes Picture Inequality, a photo contest inviting everyone ages 14 and up to submit photos to illustrate income and opportunity gaps in developing countries.
Photos can be creative and interpretive and may be taken anywhere in the developing world as long as the focus of your photo is inequality. The “developing world” is defined for purposes of this contest as countries that are eligible for World Bank aid and loans.
You may come from, or live, anywhere in the world as long as you take the photo in a country on this list of World Bank client countries 2012.
With your photo submission, you must write a paragraph on how you think the inequality, or the solution to inequality you captured, can be addressed, or realized. You must also provide a photo caption (text) that describes and offers information about the photo.
