Eating disorders recovery - scottish photography competition

Here's some info about a competition we've just heard about :)

Re-capture is running a photography project giving young people the chance to capture what recovery from an eating disorder means to them, while empowering and inspiring other young people who might be suffering from an eating disorder.

The project is being run to mark Eating Disorder Awareness Week, which takes place on the 20th-26th February 2012. We would like to invite young people aged 14 to 25 to submit a photograph representing recovery, along with a short explanation of why it illustrates recovery to you.

A selection of the photographs will be chosen to be displayed in an exhibition at the Scottish Parliament for eating disorder awareness week. It is hoped that the exhibition will create a better understanding of eating disorders and the journey of recovery, while helping to tackle stereotypes and stigma attached to the illness. The photographs will then be turned into a travelling exhibition that will be available for display across Scotland, and made into an online gallery.

For more information on the project, please see the guidelines that are on the next page. You can download the application form from www.youngscotextra.org/re-capture or email [email protected].

The closing date for entries is Friday 20th January 2012.

Good Luck!
