OPEN CALL: THIRD EDITION OF THE DOSSIER ‘INJUSTICES & INEQUALITIES: COVID-19
Photojournalists, journalists and activists are invited to respond to ‘Injustices & Inequalities: Covid-19’ : wee are witnessing disregard for basic human rights in every continent: restricted access to health care, lack of government transparency, deepened poverty, inadequate financial protection, racial discrimination and increased risk of domestic abuse. Covid-19 has exacerbated this pre-existing damage. What we are witnessing day after day is the culmination, or rather the unravel, of years of political, social and economic failure. These are issues we need to see, reflect upon and action. To contribute and participate to the various activities, including live talks, podcasts, exhibition online and more, do get in touch with us.
Below are some simple guidelines to help submitting your work to us:
We recommend files to be maximum 2000px on the longer side, 72dpi, saved as jpg. Please include a brief description of the project (200 words max), your website and social media handles, a short biography (optional).
Please send your submissions before the 30th of July 2020 to: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
JUSTZINE ISSUE3 IS OUT!
JUST ZINE issue 3 focuses on homelessness in a Covid-19 world as we understand that the pandemic has worsened an already widespread issue.
It touches on the different forms homelessness can take from life on the streets, to insecure housing and now, to temporary residence in hotels thanks to the Government’s public health initiative to get people off the streets to reduce the spread of the virus. Contributors have also shared an extract from a children story on homelessness and a touching and powerful personal story on homelessness. Furthermore they shared a photo story on the reopening of non-essential shops and the merging of DfID and the UK Foreign Office and the potential implications on foreign aid as a result of this merger. Once again I would like to thank the hard-working and very talented group of participants in the Youth Zine West project, run by the Photojournalism Hub, who produced this issue and as always, I thank our founder the Mayor of London, Culture Seeds. https://photojournalismhub.org/just-zine-magazine-3/
SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN FOR THE SECOND EDITION OF THE DOSSIER ‘INJUSTICES & INEQUALITIES: COVID-19
FIRST ISSUE OF JUST ZINE IS PUBLISHED!
Knowing You project carried on during the lockdown
A compelling article ‘Supporting communities throughout the lockdown’ by Near Neighbours on the work that the charity supported throughout the ongoing covid emergency and how the various groups and organisations have found ways of being relationally close to communities and individuals even when they stay physically distant. They list some heart-rending examples here of their work during the lockdown, and how some of the projects that they funded have decided to carry on their work overcoming the challenges of the emergency and lockdown situation. I am very humbled that the project ‘Knowing You’ is among these.

PHOTOJOURNALISM HUB STATEMENT
Hello friends and supporters,
We are living very challenging times and I hope you are and will keep well, safe and healthy.
The COVID-19 outbreak is deeply impacting our lives, communities and the world we live in.
Ensuring the safety and well being of those that engage and participate to our activities in person is paramount, therefore the Photojournalism Hub is postponing all the physical programme and events.
We are currently working on offering our events and programmes remotely and to meet and engage with all of you in this way.
As always, I and the Photojournalism Hub team is very grateful for your continued support,
The Photojournalism Hub has been awarded funding from the charity Near Neighbours to work on a project ‘Knowing You’ with women in White City. The project enables women to learn visual reporting and documentary skills over free twelve weeks sessions and produce a photobook based on a photostory of a fellow participant.
The project embraces the idea of breaking isolation, enabling bonding, creativity and eradicating cultural, religious, ethnic barriers. The first session starts on Saturday the 18th January at Our Lady of Fatima Church in White City. To enrol on this course please follow this link: Eventbrite
