Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Science in Technical Education student Clifford Mulauzi has grabbed the best photographer award in the Plan International #InMyLens Competition.

This is a competition which was organized by Plan International alongside the FDH bank where participants were supposed to illustrate through a photograph the dangers of Gender Based Violence in a community or family.

The awarding ceremony took place on December 15, 2020 at the Plan International Offices where he walked away with a prize money of k75000.

Mulauza explained that he had two pictures in which the photograph marked A, there is a man who has just finished beating his wife with a belt, however, he is trying to put a bulb on a holder to light up the house but he is failing.  In the photograph B, there is a happy family in a house full of light.

“A place where there is no violence people live in peace and they help one another to accomplish common goals, in this case a bulb is symbolizing country's goals.  Now that there is no violence the goals will be accomplished and will all live in light,” explained Mulauzi.

The prize money symbol was presented to Mulauzi by Maria Thundu, a photographer and Plan International Malawi Girls Get Equal ambassador.
