A call to youth photographers!

Adobe Youth Voices (AYV), a global youth media initiative, and the nonproft What Kids Kids Can Do, Inc. are delighted to announce our first-ever international photo competition.
When written in Chinese or Japanese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters–one represents crisis or danger, and the other represents hope or opportunity. We have taken this as inspiration for our groundbreaking competition. “Crisis and Hope” offers an exciting opportunity for youth around the world to express themselves through photographs–and make their voices heard–on both what is challenging and what gives hope in today’s difficult world.
Winning photographs will be showcased online, in a traveling exhibit, and in a book.
The contest is open to all young people–anywhere in the world–between the ages of 12 and 19.
The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2009. Winners–as many as 30–will be announced by August 31, 2009.
