PHOTO COMPETITION TO PORTRAY DIGITAL DIVIDE

Iwith.org, an organisation dedicated to helping non-profits make the best use of technology, wants your pictures and holiday snaps for its Summer Photo Competition about the digital gap.

"We suggest that you take your camera on vacation and look around," Iwith.org says. "Surprise us with a photo that will make the web visitors to our site aware of the issue."

Iwith.org describes the digital gap as the distance between people (including communities, states and countries) who use information communication technologies in their daily lives and those who lack access to or don't know how to use the technologies.

Photographs that "capture this gap" don't need to be negative or show prejudice, but simply portray the gap's existence, says Iwith.org. Photographs selected in the 2007 competition can be seen at: http://www.iwith.org/album/FotosVerano07

The photographers whose photos are selected will be considered Iwith.org members for one year, until September 2009, and will have their snaps published on Iwith.org.

Entries should be submitted electronically by 1 September 2008. Competition rules and an entry form can be found at: http://www.iwith.org/news/en_US/1/2008/06/10/0003/
