Humanitarian Photo '08 is an initiative brought by the students of the Master II "Cooperation and Project Design for Development" 6th edition of the University of La Sapienza, Rome (Italy).
Comitted to and advocating for the ideals of volunterism serving the causes of peace and development, 32 students involved, at the end of the programme, in cooperation projects in South America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, USA and Italy organised a photo contest and exhibition around the theme :
"Is blind who only sees with the eyes."
Back from the field, each volunteer proposed 3 photographs that were "examined" by a technical and artistical jury.
The sole purpose of the event was raising funds to sustain the activities of the non-profit association GGA.
Besides, a special award was given to the photo most inspired by:
"Is legitimate only the use of technologies that enhance the lives of everybody." (Gandhi)
This project lead to initiate a nomadic exhibition with openings throughout Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jordan and we hope plenty more..
