“A Europe of Diasporas” competition for the best photo to illustrate the life of the Armenian, Jewish, Roma and Assyrian diasporas of Europe.
"...The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” - Ernst Haas.
"A Europe of Diasporas" International Photo Competition was launched by the project "A Europe for Diaspora" on Fabruary 1. The project as well as the competition are run jointly by the organizations AGBU Europe, Phiren Amenca and EUJS. The competition is open to all and submissions must be made directly on the website.
The aim of the competition is to help place Europe's diasporas on the map: diasporas are recognizable not by the borders they draw, but by the contributions they make to European society, including memorable landmarks and individuals that marked their epoch.
The 20 finalists will have their photos exhibited at the European parliament during the “Europe of Diasporas” conference scheduled for May 3, 2016. The 20 finalist entries will go forward to a professional jury selecting the three winners. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners will have their travel expenses (flight and hotel) from their any European location of their choice to Brussels covered by the project. In addition, the 1st prize winner will also win a GoPro camera that will be handed over during the photo exhibition at the European Parliament. Prizes are non-transferable and there are no cash alternatives.
The prize winner is required to accept his/her prize by email within ten days of notification. In the event of non-acceptance, a supplementary winner may be drawn at the promoter’s discretion. Please, check the Terms and Conditions for details.
