LABOUR PHOTO OF THE YEAR CONTEST:
As in years past the folks over at the online labour solidarity site Labour Start are once more holding their 'Labour Photo of the Year' contest. Here's all the details.
Labour Photo of the Year 2009:
Last year, Labour Start sponsored the first-ever international Labour Photo of the Year competition. It was a huge success. Photographers from all over the world submitted their pictures and a panel of expert judges selected a short-list of the five best. Our readers then voted in their thousands to choose the winning photo.
Today we're very pleased to announce the second annual Labour Photo of the Year. We're doing this because we want to encourage and recognize the talents of worker-photographers around the world, and at the same time to encourage them to tell the stories of our struggles in photos. The deadline for submissions of photos is 30 September.

Please share this message with your fellow union members -- especially those with cameras! ( Well, I certainly hope it is "those with cameras". Perhaps those who can draw real fast and real good might also be eligible- Molly )
