=======================================
Art in the New World Order
Text and photos sent to Emperor's Clothes by "A News Photographer"
[Originally posted during the year 2000]
=======================================

The three top international photojournalism contests are: World Press, Pulitzer and Kodak Gold. They are said to set Standards of Excellence.

This year [2000], First Place in the prestigious World Press contest went to a photo of an Albanian man with a bandage on his nose.

Also awarded were images of Albanian women crying, by the same Greek Reuters photographer who won last years' Pulitzer for...an Albanian woman crying. So many ways to say the same thing.

Some of you hypercritical types might conclude that these contests have a political agenda motivated by the US elite's desire to use each and every opportunity to remind an absentminded public that the Serbian people are monsters.

You might point out that there are around six billion people in the world and only two million Albanians in Kosovo. You might say, with a ratio of one Kosovo Albanian for every 6000 humans, and with plenty of sunsets and happy children, not to mention more than enough wars to keep an army of photographers busy, that the odds of any prize going to a picture of an unhappy Kosovo Albanian are awful small.

You might argue that the reason these prizes have gone to pictures of suffering Albanians is that some powerful forces were preparing public opinion for the proper political view, namely, "Albanian good, Serb bad."

Such conclusions would be quite unreasonable!

In fact we see increasing diversity. For instance, the #1 photo in the World Press Contest (Albanian man, with bandage) breaks new ground.

It is the first time in two years that the winner in any of the top three international photojournalism competitions has *not* been: an Albanian woman crying.

EMPEROR'S CLOTHES IS IN URGENT NEED AND YOU CAN HELP!
=======================================

In order for Emperor's Clothes to continue publishing we urgently need your help. We rely entirely on contributions. We are behind on routine expenses such as rent, paying our computer guru and phone bills.

We are also (hopefully) about to produce a movie exposing the amazing media lies about the imaginary destruction of the old city of Dubrovnik in Dalmatia. The video presents hard evidence that in 1991 there was an orchestrated effort to turn world public opinion against the Serbian people by accusing the Yugoslav Navy of destroying historic Dubrovnik. Remarkably, one newspaper accused the Serbs of completely destroying the city...on several different occasions.

And yet, despite this miracle of multiple total destruction, when Prof. Petar Maher shot video footage of the Old City in March 1992, it was still standing, virtually unharmed.

If you would like Emperor's Clothes to remain standing, and to produce this important movie (on the lowest budget ever!) please help with a contribution of whatever you can afford.

Every contribution will help! $20, $50, $100. Large donations are a great help but smaller ones are much appreciated too; they add up. When you contribute your hard-earned money to Emperor's Clothes you are taking a stand against the brutal forces wrecking havoc on our world.

Here's how to contribute:

  • Or Mail a check to Emperor's Clothes, P.O. Box 610-321, Newton, MA 02461-0321. (USA)

  • Or make a donation by phone 1 617 916-1705.

Note: If you mail a donation or make one by secure server, please let us know by email at emperors1000@aol.com to make sure we receive it. Thanks!

Thank you for reading Emperor's Clothes!
