What does poverty in Calderdale mean to you?
CT Halifax Church Action on Poverty are organising the ‘Poverty in Calderdale’ conference taking place at the Kings Centre, Park Road, Halifax on 6 October 2012. They wish to seek images from the public about what poverty locally means to them.
The aim is to use these images before, during and after the conference to promote awareness and highlight issues locally.
The images can be submitted electronically to email@example.com
These images may be displayed on posters promoting the event, enlarged printed images (or projected onto screen) during the event, and in any end-of-conference report at the end of the event.
We wish to leave the choice of images as open as possible to those taking them, however please note the rules before submitting any images. Not all these are shown here but can be requested. The key issues regard permissions and consent - images supplied that do not have these consents cannot be used.
Photos submitted for the conference should as far as possible include the names and contact information of all people shown and consent for their images to be used in the image.
Children under the age of 16 years must have the signed approval of their parent(s) or guardian(s) before being photographed. Photographers must attach the signed release form from parent(s) or guardian(s) with their entries. Alternatively, photographers should submit a declaration bearing responsibility for the subject and subject matter in the photos.
