Your photograph should show what you feel to be the essence of the current economic downturn and / or "Capitalism in Crisis".

The photograph could be serious or humorous (but should always treat its subjects with respect).

Each photograph may include a short narrative (100 characters) describing the image, what it depicts and the ideas behind it. Any CWU member can enter; entries will be judged on the interpretation of the theme as well as the skill involved in taking the picture. Photos can be taken in real time or posed, and may be a composite or the result of digital manipulation.

Anyone wishing to enter should submit their photo by email to no later than 12 noon on Friday 15 May 2009. Short-listed photographs will be printed and exhibited at CWU Annual Conference 2009. The three photographs considered to best reflect the overall brief will be awarded a prize and published on the CWU Education and Training website.

The overall winner will receive a digital camcorder.
