The People in the Pictures

At the end of June, Save the Children published The People in the Pictures, an important report which looked closely at the experience of people and communities that have appeared in their communications.

The aim was to have a better understanding of how they experienced the image-making process and felt about the way in which their images were used in campaigning, fundraising and other communications. The report makes a number of recommendations, which involve greater recognition of contributors as stakeholders in the image-making process.  At the launch event, Save’s CEO, Kevin Watkins, said that they had made a number of changes to their practices to comply with the report’s recommendations.

It’s great that Save have published the findings of the report and have provided this stimulus for a sector-wide conversation.  Get the report here:
