Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Chance of a life time

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

We have been working over the last few months on a very exciting project; National Geographic Kids Magazine is holding a photo competition for chidren under 15 in 18 different countries around the world. Aina Photo is lucky enough to be facilitating the Afghan section.


The contestants have to produce one landscape, portrait and animal photograph. Most who have ever used a camera before are now being trained in the finer points of photography. We have volunteer Simon and Nasim (one of Aina Photo recent graduates) giving classes to students at the Aschiana Orphanage.


The first prize is a trip to Washington DC to meet the editors of National Geographic and take part in an exhibition of the winning images. We have our fingers crossed that one of our students may get 'the' image.



As soon as we have the images selected we will post them on line. I would like to to ask you to get involved and give us your opinion of which is the best portrait, landscape and animal photograph of the collection. This will be a great way for the students to get some feed back on their work.

So stay tuned for some images from Afghanistan's new bloods.

Hi, you are doing Great job!

Actually I read this post & I feel interested if I could go in for the competition
But I can’t find anything about it in National Geographic website!

I wonder if you could sending me the information about (or give me it’s link on web), although I’m not your student ;)
Good Luck
