Supriya Biswas , “Floating school and solar technology” – 1st prize, non-professional category
The Ten Photos to Shake the World (TPSW) photo contest aims to raise awareness on development issues and to encourage people to take actions in solving these issues. This year, ASSIST and its flagship program, DigiBayanihan, envision changing the world ten photos at a time by capturing how digital technologies can improve the lives of women, youth, rural communities, and persons with disability.
First organized in 2012, TPSW grew to be a prominent photo contest advocating for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The theme for this year is: “Digitalizing Development: Innovations for Inclusive Societies,” with focus on women, youth, rural communities, and persons with disability.
Hundreds submitted entries but only a lucky few emerged as winners. Showing how digital technology can support the production and marketing of jars in Vigan, Jesse Lopez Alegre won first prize in the professional category. As for the non-professional category, “Floating school and Solar Technology” by Supriya Biswas won the first prize.
Organized by ASSIST and its flagship program, DigiBayanihan, the event was made possible with the support of Canon, Asian Institute of Management, Inquirer.net, INQ POP, WhenInManila.com, and WhatsHappening.ph.
