Labour Photo of the Year 2010 – voting open now!
Voting has opened on LabourStart’s annual Labour Photo of the Year contest. The judging panel have chosen five entries from the pool submitted on Flickr, and have a range of photos from the UK, Korea, Turkey, USA and Canada.
You can cast your own vote at www.labourstart.org/lpoty
The UK photo up for vote is by Robert Day, the PCS activist who won the title two years back – good to see he’s still snapping his trade union activities, and doing it so well.
Staying on union photography, we’ve also noticed two union blogs that might be of interest to photography fans.
Mac Urata is a union officer and activist with a keen eye for a photo (he was actually one of the judges for this year’s LabourStart contest), and he’s started a heavily union-focused photo blog to show off his work.
And in the States, SEIU Photo Librarian David Sachs is curating some stunning photos of union work on the Labor’s Lens blog – Well worth checking out from time to time.
Professional or amateur alike, being able to tell our movement’s stories well with a camera is vital to help us connect with others. Are there any other good photo sites for trades unionists out there that we should all be aware of? Let us know!
