The FoUndation Alliance française, in partnership with the magazine Courrier International, launches the third edition of its international photography competition under the theme 'Jobs of the World'.

Last year's competition saw more than 80 countries represented, with Jamaican contestant Luca Khouri finishing in the top 20. His work and that of the other top participants were on exhibition in a gallery in Paris. The Jamaican photographer is currently travelling the world through the Alliance Française network.

The photography competition is open to non-professional photographers. All participants must be 18 years or older. Participation is free.

Contestants submit two photos that show men and women in the great diversity of jobs around the world.

Pictures should reflect the beauty as well as the difficulty of these jobs. A local jury will select a winner whose work will then be submitted to the jury in Paris.

The winner of the competition will have his/her work exhibited in a gallery in Paris and will win a week in Paris, airfare and accommodations paid.

Interested persons should consult the competition rules and registration form on the Alliance Française de la Jamaïque website: www.alliancefrjm.org or contact the Alliance Française at alliancefr.jm@gmail.com or 978-6996.
