ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Federation of Natives launched a call for photos, asking Alaska Natives of all ages to share photographs depicting the 2010 Convention's "Village Survival!" theme.
The Village Survival! exhibit will debut at this year's Convention in Fairbanks and is intended to inspire exhibit participants and Convention attendees to engage in a dialogue about the resilience and vibrancy of village communities across urban and rural Alaska.
Photographs may be submitted via email or post by Sept. 15. Submissions are limited to three photos per participant, and must be high resolution to be considered for inclusion in the exhibit that will debut at the convention.
Participants are encouraged to be creative in their depiction of the "Village Survival!" theme, with an emphasis on showing all aspects of village life; from daily activities, culture, language, education and community, to family, transportation, subsistence and development. Participants whose photos are selected for inclusion will be notified via phone or email on October 4, 2010.
