“100 Photographers Focus on COVID-19” Call for photos, fight epidemic together

Sponsored by China Daily, co-organized by Wink Culture Group, Capital Library and Shijiazhuang Yiling Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and published by China Pictorial Press, the book “100 Photographers Focus on Covid-19” is now calling for news photography works from the majority of photographers.

As Chinese people are about to usher in the Chinese New Year 2020, a sudden epidemic has enveloped the land of Hubei, and then spread rapidly throughout the country. Under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee, the 1.4 billion Chinese people have joined forces to overcome the difficulties, and launched a people’s war, a general war and a resistance war for epidemic prevention and control. In this process, many praiseworthy anti-epidemic stories have emerged in all walks of life, especially the angels in white, who fought against the disease, devoted lives to retrograde, unremitting, sticking to the line, practicing the original intention and mission of the doctor with love and life, and caring for one life after another. Photographers were not absent from the epidemic, recording the cities that seemed to have been pressed the pause key, and the reversers who never stopped. They used camera to present and retain the hospital ward, streets and alleys, scenes of heartbreaking and painful moments, and also recorded scenes full of love and confidence. Moments, vivid pictures and life stories are engraved with a history, recording a destiny and spirit, which will bring readers touching stories and power of moving forward, and will become the best witness to win this epidemic prevention and control resistance war.
