Iwith.org's Third Edition Summer Photo Campaign: Expose the Digital Divide This Summer


*Use your camera to show up the so-called“digital divide” and participate in Iwith.org's summer 2009 contest. A great way to get a massive audience for your photos and give a meaning to your vacation



You'll be sure to take a camera along on your coming vacations. Iwith.org, international NGO based in Barcelona and Switzerland, wants you to take some photos with a particular meaning: photos that expose the digital divide in order to participate in the 3rd edition of iwith.org's summer photograph contest.

The digital divide is the gap that exists between those (individuals, communities, states, countries) who use the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a normal part of their daily lives and those who have no access to them, or even if they have them, lack the knowledge of how to use them or benefit from them.

iwith.org's idea is that, during these vacations, when you see that divide reflected in a real situation, you take a photograph and share it with us and the people who visit your web site. Iwith.org is a non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize the information and communication technologies (ICT) as a tool of solidarity and social improvement. Iwith.org assists non-profit organizations on four continents to be able to work and communicate more effectively through their websites with the technological solutions suited to their needs. At Iwith.org we believe that technologies and the internet are tools for development, so people lacking information technology are missing out on a great opportunity to achieve a greater sense of well-being for themselves.
