The United Nations Development Programme, along with Olympus and the Agence France-Presse Foundation, have launched the second annual Picture This photo contest in Johannesburg, South Africa. Picture This: We Can End Poverty seeks to show the inspirational work that is being done in many countries to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, eight goals agreed on by world leaders to halve extreme poverty by 2015. The first, second and third place winners in each of the two categories—professional photo and amateur photo—will win an Olympus E-P2. The first prize winners and the People’s Choice winner will be flown to New York for an awards ceremony. The first prize winner in the professional category will also be eligible for a fellowship through The AFP Foundation. For more information, visit the official contest page.
