IIAS Photo Contest 2014: Picturing Asia

Sonja Zweegers

At IIAS we endorse story-telling by way of pictures – The Newsletter uses an abundance of colourful images, which has become one of its most recognisable features. Our contributors and readers come from all over the world and speak dozens of different languages, so what better medium is there to represent a global language we can all understand?

We always have a lot of fun looking for pictorial material to accompany our articles and other items in The Newsletter, so now, in the celebratory spirit of our 20th anniversary we invite our readers and friends of IIAS to contribute to our growing image collection, by taking part in the IIAS Photo Contest, which will be launched on 1 January 2014, and run through to 30 June 2014.

This photo contest, on the special occasion of 20 years IIAS, offers you the chance to have your photo published in The Newsletter. We would like to give you the opportunity to tell a visual story, to explore photography’s capacity for communication, to capture the unexpected, and to share with us the world you live in.
