Dear Shahidul ,
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to follow-up on our earlier invitation to you to participate in a unique non-profit photography project called The Other Hundred.
The Other Hundred is a counterpoint to the Forbes 100, Bloomberg Billionaires list and the countless other rich-lists that are constantly making headlines and filling newsstands. This global non-profit project will be a collection of photo essays from world-class photographers and photojournalists from across the globe highlighting the world?s Other Hundred ? those people who aren?t among the world?s rich, but whose lives deserve to be celebrated. We very much admire your work and hope you are interested in participating. Continue reading “Entry date for "The Other Hundred" extended to 15th April”

The Forbes 100, the Fortune 500, Bloomberg?s Billionaire Index, the list of rich lists is endless.? But the super-rich are only a very small fraction of the population, and their story is not the whole story. It is this other story that we would like to tell in The Other Hundred, a photo-book aimed at bringing attention to the overwhelming majority of the world?s people who are not billionaires but who nevertheless lead lives worth celebrating.
The Other Hundred has a broad base of international support from the expertise of our outstanding judging panel featuring Ruth Eichhorn, Richard Hsu, and Stephen Wilkes and the participation of excellent photographers including Benjamin Lowy,?Khaled Hasan,?Brent Stirton,?Edwin Koo, Paolo Woods?and?Andrea Diefenbach.
The goal of The Other Hundred is both to inform and to provoke thought. This means that we don?t just want photographs of the hardships of a life of poverty, but also of the startling achievements people can make in the face of adversity. It is important to us that our subjects come across as real people to be understood, even celebrated, rather than anonymous statistics to be pitied or patronised.
Each submission may be a single photograph or a series of photographs. This is a global endeavor, and we welcome submissions from any and every country and continent.
