If there’s a big fat hole in your life where our campaign posts used to be… never fear. Because today we’re introducing you to our Travel Competition winners - and sharing their entries!
For those of you who don’t know, we ran a competition for students and graduates, asking them to send in some of the stories of women they met on their travels. The entries could be in the form of video, or words and photos – and there was £1000 prize money up for grabs.
The deadline was 30th September, and we really enjoyed watching and reading all the submissions. It was a tough call, but now we present to your our winner and two runners up…
First prize – Ewan Michael Riley
Ewan found four women with contrasting views and life experiences, and let them discuss issues that mattered to them amongst themselves.
Of making a film about woman as a man, Ewan said: “The result hopefully comes across not as a male perspective on women, but rather a film that allows women to speak for themselves and express their own identities, which is after all the aim of the What I See Project” – spot on Ewan!
So many congratulations to Ewan – it was great for Edwina, the project’s founder, to be able to hand him his prize face-to-face!
Runner up – Andrea Fonsmorti
Runner up – Susan Macaulay
Very well done to all those who contributed, and to our winning entries!
