    Photographer

    Scope of Work 

    In order to capture the impact of the Action and demonstrate the positive results from ECHO funding, UNICEF ESARO Communication section requires the services of an experienced professional photographer to deliver a series of high-quality photos that will be used to support visibility and awareness to constituencies in Europe, as well as social media and website activities. Given the COVID-19 situation, the delivery of the project would span the three years of the project to ideally permit obtaining content in all three programme countries and in year two and/or three establish photo exhibits in Brussels and/or other European cities.

    The main messages to be captured in the series of professional photographs:

    Malnutrition is complex; it is not only about the lack of food, but it is also about the quality of food and the diversity of food given to children. Tackling malnutrition also requires addressing underlying causes such as malaria and diarrhoeal diseases caused by a lack of clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
    Saving and improving the lives of children affected by severe acute malnutrition is not only the right thing to do but the smart thing to do.  It is a more cost-effective way to address malnutrition, and more importantly can help save lives and prevent suffering.  Malnutrition and hunger are painful and can lead to long term physical and cognitive damages that will require a long-term and even more costly response.

    The photographer will work in collaboration with the UNICEF ESARO Communication section in Nairobi, and the Chiefs of Communication in the three countries to:

    Year 1 – Obtain photos and visual material that could be used for some human-interest stories, social media packs, short video clips and infographics
    Year 1 – Obtain visuals that could feed into 3 X 90” videos on the Action;
    Year 2 – Obtain photos to develop 3 X photo essays on the Action (1 per country)
    Year 2 – Develop content and more visibility in Europe through creative platforms and displays where funds would strengthen the distribution plan  
    Year 3 – Provide photos to develop one or three photo essays on the Action in 1 or all three countries
    Year 3 – Visuals and montage for a photo exhibition/display in Brussels and/or other European cities
    The consultant will deliver a package of 3x15-30 photographs and 3x10 photographs (all approved from wider selection) with captions/quotes (Relevant permissions from those photographed is required – UNICEF to provide form).  Ideally the photographer would start travel possibly to South Sudan as a first stop in quarter 4 to ensure quality content that could be used for key calendar moments to provide added visibility to the ECHO funding and UNICEF’s work around malnutrition. 

    Task and Responsibilities:

    1. Take high-resolution photographs (minimum resolution of 2000 x 3000 pixels; 6 mega pixels with zero compression in JPEG and/or PNG formats), according to UNICEF photography guidelines.
    2. Provide captions with locations and names for photos depicting 1-2 persons and small groups that don’t fall under the category of “mass.” Date when photo was captured, and other relevant information, including longer caption on the human interest story of the child/persons in the photos, should also be provided. All information, including complete name of photographer should be embedded in the metadata.
    3. Select best photos related to each task (minimum of 15 and maximum of 30) in consultation with the Communication teams across the three countries and ESARO.
    4. Photographs will be provided in raw format and optimized resolution via file transfer service or an external memory medium.
    5. Photographs must be provided in high quality suitable for printing, processing or publishing.
    6. Obtain consent forms with complete information and duly signed by children’s guardians and stakeholders.

    Deliverables:

    Original (not manipulated or compressed) photos with minimum resolution of 2000 x 3000 pixels; 6 mega pixels with zero compression. JPEG and/or PNG formats.
    A set of 15 to 30 edited/optimized photos with the original files retained.
