[dropcap style=”font-size:100px; color:#992211;”]T[/dropcap]he Little Black Gallery is delighted to be one of the judges for Survival International’s annual photo competition.

The competition aims to celebrate photography as a powerful medium for raising awareness of tribal peoples, their unique ways of life and the threats to their existence.

Both amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to enter.

The theme this year is tribal conservationists. Survival is looking for images that show tribal peoples in their natural environment, as the best conservationists and guardians of the natural world to support their “Stop the Con!” campaign.

Survival International is the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights. It was founded in 1969 following an article by Norman Lewis in the UK’s Sunday Times Magazine about the genocide of Brazilian Indians, which featured powerful images from the acclaimed photographer Don McCullin.
