Diasporas: Photography Competition 2014

Here is a competition that might interest you

Diasporas: Connecting, Contesting, Converging

Olivia Sheringham

Alpha Abebe

Diasporas are one of the most prominent and controversial manifestations of increased globalization. The connection between migrants and people who have stayed at home has profound effects on societies in the country of origin and the country of destination, as well as on the diasporas themselves.


We are particularly looking for images that illustrate how diasporas connect with those back home, others in diaspora and more widely; the conflicting identities of diasporas; and how diasporas converge with other communities.


£300, £100 and £50 prizes for three winners. Winning entries will also be displayed at public events in Oxford and London. Photos will be featured in ODP publications.

Deadline for entries 29 August 2014
