New York, New York. Here comes Stanford!

We are not much in favor of all kinds of photography competitions for which you have to pay an entrance fee to participate. But now we made an exception (on invitation BTW). Although there is a jury that makes the final decision people can also vote for us online. The more votes the bigger the chance to win the JACKPOT of 75,000 US-Dollars. If we should win it (which is most probably beyond any imagination) we donate one third to the NGO Food4Thought here in Stanford, South Africa. This community based NGO runs, for over 10 years now, a pre-primary school in the informal settlement Die Kop that is virtually fully privately funded with well trained teachers, born and bred in Die Kop. The school is one of the best of its kind in the Western Cape. The NGO is fully accountable and periodically independently audited and complies therefore even for funding from the USA (strict regulations over there when it comes to funding South African projects).

As theme for the photographic competition we choose for the village we are living. The main picture in the linked page is THE one which will circulate in the jury and in diverse (online) media; the smaller ones are there  for illustrating how we see and enjoy Stanford through the lens.

Thanks for voting!
