Thanks to the women and men who have expressed an interest in submitting photos for the #nudephotorevolutionaries Calendar.
We’ve received a huge amount of interest in the project.
Those who have already agreed to submit nude photos include SlutWalk co-founder Sonya JF Barnett, blogger Greta Christina, campaigner Maryam Namazie, comedian Shabana Rehman, philosopher Daniel Salvatore Schiffer and columnist Joan Smith.
The idea is to have 12 photos – one for each month of the year – paying homage to Aliaa Magda Elmahdy with a short quote explaining why the person has stripped.
Here are a few more details:
It needs to address an issue pertaining to free speech, secularism or rights and against misogyny and Islamism.
The photo must be professionally taken and not published anywhere else.
It has to be of high quality and in black and white. The photos should be no less than 300 dpi, at a size of 11×17.
The deadline for submissions is 1 March 2012.
Please don’t email your photos yet; a server address will be provided for photos to be uploaded to.
Don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
BTW, after the deadline, a group of judges (including singer/songwriter Deeyah) will select the 12 that will be included in the calendar.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
