The Global SinoPhoto Awards, created by Yintong Betser, Managing Director of ACTIVE Anglo Chinese Communications and Lynne Bryant, founder of The Architectural Photography Awards, aims to strengthen the international understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture and heritage around the world and to celebrate its visual representation through photography. In this, the Global SinoPhoto Awards' inaugural year, we are inviting all photographers, regardless of age, race or location, to show us how they have engaged with and photographed Chinese culture, and what it means to them.

Since the Chinese invented the compass more than 2000 years ago, the Chinese people have travelled and traded widely. Wherever in the world the Chinese people settle, they retain an innate sense of family, tradition and community. But what does the world understand about this community beyond Chinese food, tourists, economic stats and news reports?

With recent events, including the pandemic, the issues of diversity and ethnicity have been heightened in discussions around the world. We are seeing communities worldwide debate and discuss their own race, ethnicity, heritage, and their future, and the Chinese community is no different. Here we can have a voice sharing what is positive. Photography can help understanding and expression – the visual language is universal; a photograph can speak 1000 words.

《华人镜界》国际摄影大奖赛的宗旨在于通过无国界,无语言障碍的摄影作品向世界展现各国华人的生存形态及其特有的民族个性;增进国际社会对华人及其文化的了解;与世人共同探讨华人与全人类相通的生活理念:对生活,对家庭和对我们生存环境的热爱与关注。大奖赛诚邀所有摄影人的参与,不分年龄、背景、国籍和种族。

精深博大的华夏文明漂洋过海,将美味养身的中国茶菜遍及各国,还有那越来越热的“普通话”,这一切皆因离乡背井闯荡天下的华人经年来的播散与传扬。他们虽然分布在世界各个角落,但其祖籍家谱均同源于中国,他们从未谋面的同族远亲仍在故土孕育着未来…… 华人是个情筑的民族——亲情,乡情,友情,爱情,心情,感情,都融在华人的生命根髓中,可是,与华人共存的世界又对他们了解多少?

天灾需要人类共同的抗争,人祸需要人类文明去化解。分担国际社会和平的责任,分享各种族的文化特性,寻求各民族文化间的理解和互助,也是海外华人的信念和夙求。“一张照片胜过千言万语”,以无国界,无语言障碍的摄影作品,来表述华人自古至今在沉默中的诉说与呼唤。这,便是此次《华人镜界》国际摄影大奖赛的渊源。
