Disabled photography competition. Need the great heart and idea of yours
I am going to arrange a disabled photography competition. However, I still do not have enough idea to kick start.
My aim is to involved the most number of disabled people to take part in the photographic event. To voice out to other people that the disabled could do anything if they want to. I also want to raise the most amount of money for them. In addition, I will sponsor the winners equipments.
I am thinking to rent a venue and sell the the winning pictures as charity and return the money to the disabled photography society but I am worried not enough people will know about the competition and of course would not buy the pictures.
Do you think I shall just let the normal photographers to take part in the competition and raise money for the disabled?
Any idea of raising money for them?
What topic would be suitable?
This is a lovely idea
See if you can get a national newspaper or media company involved as good long term publicity is vital for success
"Do you think I shall just let the normal photographers to take part in the competition and raise money for the disabled?"
Absolutely - with modern cameras disabled people are on an equal footing with the best photographers in the world, provided the have the facility to steady a camera (like a functional camera bracket fitted to the wheel chair etc) - Being disabled myself by Parkinsons being treated as a normal person is very pleasing and I think it is good to integrate rather than segregate.
"Any idea of raising money for them?"
Selling pictures, creating a calender, book etc., may provide additional income (and good publicity will swell sales)
"'What topic would be suitable?" Street photography - Wildlife - Around the Home - Holiday and Travel etc.
Best of luck and if you think I can help in any way just contact me.
Thank you for Andy's Contribution. I will definitely take your idea to work around the project. Looking forward for your participation and winning the event :)
I received a new comment from another forum and had been notified there is a competition that held on 11.29 for people with diabilities. I will attend to see what they have done and notify you guys accordingly. However, keep your ideas flying. Thanks
