Crisis Porn Caption Competition

IMG-20150720-WA0000

In a tribute to our friends at The Guardian and their noble effort to present the Greek situation to the world via the medium of “gritty” street photography and a random caption generator, we launch our first caption competition.

You too can take your turn at transforming an anti-fascist mural into a depiction of “economic repression and class strife” because you didn’t look close enough to spot the swastika on the ‘victim”s armband; label hippy freegans and rag-and-bone men alike as generic “man looking through dustbin” because you didn’t have the patience or the wherewithal to find the destitute pensioners to fit your editor’s brief; or caption intravenous drug users “homeless people”, because you refuse to be constrained by any notion of context or local understanding.

Some of the editorial team’s favourites so far:

“German humanitarian aid to include home delivery of cash rations to lazy Greeks”

“Exhausted OXI campaigner takes a well-earned break from protesting against Sunday trading”

“[Some desperate pun on] hangover”
