Photo contest inspires creative islanders

January 21, 2017

A PHOTO contest launched by the Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme aims to inspire creative Pacific citizens to direct their camera skills and capture striking images that reflect the theme “Growing Financial Inclusion”.

PFIP’s manager Mark Flaming said: “PFIP works in the area of financial inclusion in the Pacific because we firmly believe that access to appropriate financial services is a first step for low-income and disadvantaged groups to improve their quality of life.

“This photo contest is an excellent opportunity for us to better understand the human connection of what Pacific Islanders feel is important on the topic of financial inclusion in an increasingly interconnected world.

“We encourage people to engage with the theme and interpret it creatively.”

The contest is open to amateur and professional photographers from countries where PFIP programs operate.

Those interested in entering can visit PFIP’s website to register: www.pfip.org/newsroom/pfip-photo-contest/.

The contest opens today and closes on February 28, 2017. Winners will be announced on March 15, 2017.
