beads-to-bricks-at-beadforlife-calendar-winnerWe, on the Fair Trade Calendar Committee are pleased to announce the winners of the first annual Fair Trade Photo Competition conducted by Fair Trade Federation and Fair Trade Resource Network. From the 60+ photos submitted and the thousands of votes cast on Competico.com, producer groups, student activists, and a wide array of fair trade supporters participated over the three week competition. While anyone could vote, photo entries were restricted to students, activists, wholesalers, retailers and others who had a direct affiliation with FTF, FTRN TransFair or WFTO.

The 12 photos with the most votes will each appear as a monthly photo in the inaugural edition of the Fair Trade Calendar, and smaller versions of other photo contest submissions will also appear throughout the calendar.
