Rules and regulations

This competition seeks to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS amongst young people through photography. It aims to get youth to realize the social implications of being infected with HIV and to bring home the message that being young does not make them any less susceptible to the disease. As this is a global epidemic it is crucial that this type of communication takes place. The beauty of photography is that it has the ability to transcend language barriers and to allow cross-cultural dialogue and understanding.
