SIGNS OF WORK – Photography and Film Contest

What is safe work in modern world? What threatens us at work the most? How do we protect ourselves against those threats?

The working environment is changing day by day. We observe nanotechnologies, collaborative robotics, automation, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, industry 4.0 and also new forms of work and modern ways of communication. The world is full of chase for innovation and in the same time for security. The new contest “SIGNS OF WORK” has been created to be a story about those searches.

The competition is for people who are interested in film, photography, social campaigns, advertisement, storytelling, photo and video blogs or combination of different forms. It is for those who ask themselves questions about processes and social phenomena which are important today and who wonder what the work will look like in the near future and what new threats and opportunities are associated with modern work.
