Crowdsourcing our landscape

The Market Photo Workshop are calling on South Africa residents to submit photographs of their notions of land and landscape. Prizes include an Apple MacBook Air, an iPad and R10 000 in Market Photo Workshop bursaries.

Forming part of the ongoing Social Landscape Project, all of the photographs submitted will serve as a collective archive of the ordinary South African’s perception and understanding of our landscape.

People are encouraged to use any tool they have access to, whether it is a professional camera or an ordinary cellphone. The images may be submitted through various means.

“Social Landscape seeks to celebrate a sense of belonging through images gathered using platforms like Facebook and Twitter,” says John Fleetwood, head of the Market Photo Workshop.

Submissions close on 30 October 2012. Selected images will be screened during the public engagement day in November, and will also be part of a traveling exhibition in 2013.
