Winning pro-life contest photos will be shown to Pope
Aug. 5, 2013
The winning photos of the contest “Life…in HD,” which is being organized by the Pontifical Council for the Family, will be projected for Pope Francis this October in Rome. The Vatican office announced the event on its website, inviting young people to “Become Pope Francis’ photographer” in a “photo competition for teens on the occasion of the Pilgrimage of the Families.”
Teens between the ages of 12 and 18 are invited to participate in the contest by telling “in a photo for Pope Francis what it means to live life to its fullest.” Photos can be submitted through the office’s Facebook page throughout October 15, 2013. “The most beautiful and meaningful ones will be selected for a projection in the presence of Pope Francis,” organizers said.
They will be displayed for the Pope during the Pilgrimage of the Families October 26 and 27 in Rome. The Pontifical Council for the Family can be found on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/PontificiumConsiliumproFamilia.
