Judging for the FRI’s Scriptwriting Competition

Last week I started a new curious activity: I’m part of the judging panel of the scriptwriting competition on Smallholder Farmer Innovation launched last summer by Farm Radio International.

Actually we are in the phase one of the evaluation process: over 70 scripts were received by FRI and 58 of them passed the initial screening. They have been divided up so each judge got 9 or 10 scripts to review. We now have to go through these entries and select our top 4 or 5 (based on a common judging criteria score sheet). These top 4 or 5 will then proceed to the second round where every judge will review all of the scripts.

More about the competition during the next weeks when I’ll have a better idea on the entries.

CGAP Microfinance Photography Contest

CGAP recently announced the winners of 2008 Microfinance Photography Contest.

Somenath Mukhopadhyay, a teacher in West Bengal, India, is the winner of the CGAP Contest with his image of a girl preparing radishes to bring to the market. The contest had more than 700 entries from professional and nonprofessional photographers in 40 countries all over the world.

I’m really happy that development institutions are stimulating photographers to get involved in the attempt to represent many different environments and show everyone the best and not only the worst aspects of our world.
