Got this in an email, thought I’d pass it along if anyone’s interested. Doesn’t specify anything about payment.
The production season has begun for the U.S. Department of State’s 2011 Trafficking in Persons Report. The TIP Report is an annual assessment that raises global awareness and serves as our government’s primary diplomatic tool to help end forced labor, sexual exploitation and other forms of modern slavery.
As an editor and production manager, I’m looking for new sources of photographs to use in this year’s report. Do you have any trafficking-related photos in your portfolio that we might be able to use? We will credit you, of course, and your photo will reach NGOs, think tanks and governments all over the world. (You can see PDFs of previous years’ reports at: http://www.state.gov/g/tip/rls/tiprpt/index.htm). The 2011 TIP Report will be released in mid-June. We’ll print 9,000 hard copies, and the Department will use the photos online.
By trafficking-related, I mean any photos from anywhere in the world that show situations related to: forced labor, sex trafficking, child labor, child sex tourism, migrant workers, debt bondage, domestic servitude, child soldiers, or any other form of modern slavery. The photos don’t have to explicitly show these things, but they could also be of situations or conditions that contribute to any of these. Note that some of the things in that list are not situations of human trafficking in themselves. But I’ve included them as search terms because they represent situations that make people vulnerable to trafficking.
If you have any photos you’d like to contribute to this report, please let me know. We prefer photos from within the past year (June 2010-present), but we’ll also consider others if the situations depicted are still relevant today. As always, our goal is to come up with a final selection of photos that show a variety of forms of trafficking from all regions of the world.
