The New York City Independent Media Center (IMC) has a feature - a  one†to two page photo essay -†to its bi-monthly free paper, The Indypendent. The Indypendent has a print circulation between 15,000 and 20,000 copies, most are distributed in the greater metropolitan area.


The New York City Independent Media Center (IMC) has a feature

- a  one†to two page photo essay -†to its bi-monthly free paper, The

Indypendent. The Indypendent has a print circulation between 15,000 and

20,000 copies, most are distributed in the greater metropolitan area.

This photo essay should adhere to the IMC's mission (1) to create a new

media ethic by providing progressive, in-depth, and accurate coverage

of  issues impacting individuals, communities and eco-systems. A

critical part  of Indymedia's mission is (2) to serve as "a democratic

media outlet for the creation of radical, accurate and passionate

tellings of truth."

To see some of the photoessays published go to (About Irak) (About an immigrant worker in Brooklyn) (about the MST in Brazil) (about Palestine)

For this new photo feature, we would like to publish coherent essays

that  engage a topic or theme, rather than merely a collection of

related images.  We want to see photography that reflects the raw

passion of independent  media makers and documentarians - work that

keeps you on the streets looking  for challenging images and topics

depicting the multitude of social,  economic and political concerns that

are relevant to our world today as well  as depictions of daily life of

underrepresented communities all over the world.

Each monthís essay will be selected from submissions by the photo essay

team, an open group that includes an overlap of photographers and

designers.  The criteria for the selection will stress the quality of

the images and the  coherence and topicality of the essay. Photo essays

not chosen one month will be considered again†for the next month.

We are part of a global, community-based, volunteer, and completely

non-profit media network . Nobody gets paid at the NYC IMC.† Therefore,

we can not pay photographers for their  work.† Through this photo essay,

we are providing the opportunity for photographers to have their work

published, a photo essay and a topic they really believe in.†

Photographers, of course, will receive prominent credit for their

published work, and retain all copyrights.

Photo essays should consist of 10-15 images exploring one global or

local topic. Text and captions to contextualize the essay should be

The Indypendent takes the explosion of online independent media and brings


to the streets of New York City, where it is needed most desperately. Mixing


spirit of direct action with a searing critique of corporate power, the

Indypendent is

more than fantastic source of alternative news, it is itself a living

alternative of

another way to live and work. Support it in any way you can!

Naomi Klein, commentator, activist and author of "No Logo"

With the rise of international global justice movements that are

unprecedented in scope and vitality, along with growing resistance here to

war and oppression and the search for new and more humane directions for

society and politics, there is an urgent need for independent media to

which activists and concerned citizens can turn for information and

analysis that escapes the filters and doctrinal bounds of the establishment

spectrum.† In brief, there is an urgent need for the Indypendent newspaper

of New York City and the global Indymedia network on which so many have

come to rely.

Noam Chomsky, Professor MIT
