What is ChinaNext?
China’s Future. A photography competition raising money for Shanghai’s underprivileged students. The winning photographs will be printed, framed and then sold at auction for charity during the event. The Shanghai Flickr Meetup group is organizing a charity auction event. Flickr members submit their digital photographs under the theme “China Next: China’s Future” as seen by the photographer.

Since the competition’s statement is to raise money by auctioning images, I think the subject can be a bit off from children themselves.
