獎項設置:

一等獎:1000美元(1名)

二等獎:500美元(6名)

三等獎:200美元(30名)

所提交的作品必須是關于中國大陸的一個具體的宗教場所。宗教場所可以是寺廟,道觀,教堂,清真寺,或者其他類型用來舉行宗教活動的場所。作品應包括5至15張照片(其中可以包括短視頻)以及800至1200字的短文(中文或英文)。除了吸引人的視覺效果外,作品需要講述一個關于這個宗教場所的故事。故事內容可以包括宗教場所的歷史背景介紹,對于正在進行的儀式的描述,對于儀式參加者的分析,以及對于宗教場所管理的介紹,等等。作品也可以通過一個宗教場所新舊圖片的對比,講述該宗教場所的歷史變遷。作品圖文關注點必須是宗教場所及其相關參與者,而不是參賽作者的個人經歷。

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Seeing Religion in China: Visual Essays of Religious Sites

In order to better understand and demonstrate religion in China, the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University invites submissions of visual essays, including pictures/videos and text, for a contest entitled “Seeing Religion in China: Visual Essays of Religious Sites.” The Center will invite scholars and professional photographers to form a committee to judge the visual essays.

PRIZES

Grand Prize: $1000 (one award)

Second Prize: $500 (six awards)

Third Prize: $200 (30 awards)

Each submission must focus on?ONE?specific religious site in Mainland China. A religious site can be a temple, a church, a mosque, or other type of site for religious activities. Each visual essay should include 5 to 15 pictures (including short video clips) and 800-1,200 words (English or Chinese). In addition to being visually attractive, the photos and text of the essays should tell a story or provide information about the religious site being depicted. This may include background and historical information, analysis of worshippers who visit the site, depiction of rituals carried out at the site, visual or textual representation of how the site is managed (leadership, relationship with state, etc.), or other relevant information. Visual essays may depict change over time, by including older photos of the site, or pictures of older and newer buildings on the same site. The text for the essay should contextualize the photos/videos, focusing on the religious site and worshippers rather than the author’s experience.

Examples of recent photo essays from?Time?magazine can be found here:?http://time.com/tag/photo-essay/.?For a discussion of good photo essays, you are encouraged to read “Ways of Seeing: The Contemporary Photo Essay” by Phil Bicker at the Time magazine website:?http://time.com/3626915/ways-of-seeing-the-contemporary-photo-essay/.

The visual essays may be presented in Word/PDF form, or may be submitted in another format, such as Esri Story Map. The photos/videos may be attached as higher resolution figures in addition to being found in the visual essays.
