A photography community by peace, security, and development professionals that bring you closer to the field
The FPC Board is the central hub of the organisation. A small team of people that all make our activities and ideas a reality. As of February 2020 FPC was registered as a non-for profit organisation in Stockholm, Sweden. FPC holds the following org. number: 802529-4185.
FPC is a community of likeminded professionals. Passionate about your work, interested in photography and want to showcase the stories you feel strongly about? Sounds like you should join. We welcome and encourage professionals working in peace, security, and development to create and share photo essays from the field.
In order for FPC to be able to publish your work on the FPC website all photos must be taken by you. You must also ensure that you have the right to publish the content you provide to FPC. Please note that by submitting content, you allow FPC to potentially publish and disseminate the material.
FPC reserves the right to review and edit all submitted content. Content of pornographic or defamatory nature will not be considered. FPC further reserves the right to erase any content on our website or flag content on social media outlets if deemed inappropriate. We currently run the platform on a voluntary basis. Hence, there are no costs involved.
Want to contribute to the FPC Platform? There are two steps (1) submit a photo essay for the FPC website and (2) do an Instagram “takeover” for a week. For “takeovers” please see separate instructions.
Photo essays are accepted on a rolling basis. We welcome and encourage applications from all countries and contexts. We accept content from people with (1) experience from working in peace, security, and development; (2) a sincere interest in documenting their work as aspiring photographers; and (3) have a desire to show their work and inspire others.
If you wish to submit a photo essay for the FPC website, please provide us with the following:
A “takeover” entails daily submissions on the FPC Instagram account. The duration of the “takeover is for a week only - one photo per day with a short explanatory text. The images for the “takeover” should be the same and reflect the narrative of the photo essay. For more information about the takeovers please see separate instructions.
FPC does not automatically represent the contributors. All contributors will be informed of and asked if they want to participate in any FPC related activities.
