Seems a shame to limit the pool to those with an “advanced university degree in a relevant field of study (photography, graphic arts, design)”….

What are the “two most recent performance appraisals or performance evaluation reports” to which you referred? Are these supposed to be from reference/previous employers? The app asks for references who can be contacted . . .

Well qualified candidates, “particularly women”

I guess that pretty much rules me out!

I don´t want to be misunderstood here as a blind follower without opinion but if I could not say anything better than that:

“I’m glad you brought up N.G.O.’s, because that has become a real game. Like we work for these N.G.O.’s, right? It’s advertising, so that they can raise money and they can continue to do the good that they do. We get all upset if a photographer shoots for Shell or BP. But when we think in terms of photographing for certain nonprofit organizations who have a lot of money, and we become their spokesperson, we start to lose our objectivity.”

Well, “particular women” would rule me out, since they always seem to do that. Does not sound too bad for this sort of thing. Has anyone worked for UNICEF out there? This opportunity has lapsed, but does anyone have experience with these forms? Do they keep you on file?

This does not rule out male candidates. It is common language in this kind of institutions.
