Some time ago we suddenly received a lot of entries from India. The weblinks directed us to the website of Fairmail, an organisation that makes greeting cards using pictures made by underpriviliged Indian teenagers. They help the youngsters to prepare for their future and earn money for their own housing and education. Participants in the Indian FairMail project all made the effort to make a Red Line Portrait. How cool is that! Unfortunately most of the entries where landscape and we saw room for improvement. Eager as we are, we challenged them to make a second entry. And they did! Below all ten (10!) of them tell about their self-portrait.
You'll find communities and competitions here. Both are motiviting and inspiring. In some way participants form communities too ;)
