Images to face digital inequality

In the pandemic context, the digital divide has revealed a multiplicity of  gaps that generate different inequalities based on geographical, social and economic factors. Given the complexity of the current scenario, it is necessary to find alternatives to mitigate the impact of these inequalities.

The initiative Digital divide and inequalities: stories for change, promoted by Digital Future Society, is launched with the objective of making visible the different problems generated by digital divides, and give voice to those affected by them. This photography contest aims to have an inclusive and integrative approach, encouraging the participation of professional photographers, artists, students and every citizen interested in the subject.

Contest Rules

The expected entries must make visible the impact of the digital divides on society at a global level. The eligible digital artworks will be photographs, posters and infographics. Each work will be accompanied by a title and a document of 300-800 word length explaining the story behind the work or the reasons that inspired it. DFS will promote a virtual exhibition based on the different winning works. The exhibition will take place in framework of the MWC Barcelona 2021.
