INASP ( International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications ) is running a photo competition offering 25 awards of $300 ( US ) for the best entries. There will also be two special prizes of $500 ( US ) each for country co-ordinating teams.
INASP works with many different types of library in Africa, Asia and Latin America and supports and encourages librarians involved in advocacy work, raising awareness of and support for their libraries. It wants to showcase these activities and to allow those involved to celebrate their achievements and and share them with others.
This competition allows librarians to summarise their advocacy and, if successful, win a small prize to use towards any advocacy work they plan for this year.
All the details of the competition can be seen on the INASP website; look for Bringing Libraries to Life.
