“Migration, Stories of a Journey” a photography award
November 8, 2011Posted by on
I have been asked to publicise this photographic competition and I am happy to do so because they are a worthy and worthwhile organisation.
Accademia Apulia UK now welcomes submissions for its online 2011 Photography Award.
Migration, Stories of a Journey, is aimed at promoting emerging photographers of all nationalities based in the EU whose work explores the lives and development of Migrants in Europe. The fundamental principle of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that
“all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, however whilst for many migration is a positive experience, many others endure human rights violations, exploitation and xenophobia.
The focus of Accademia Apulia Photography Award 2011 aims to highlight migrants’ struggle and difficulties as well as to show migrants’ accomplishments and contributions as successful members and leaders of their adopted country.
Migration, Stories of a Journey, is under the Patronage of Amnesty International, the British Council, The European Commission and the international Organisation for Migration.
Entries opened on 18th Oct and are free. Please visit www.accademiapulia.org The closing date for entries is 30th Dec 2011

The three finalists will be revealed on 10 January 2012 and the winner on 10 Feb 2012. Their works will be showcased in a group exhibition curated by Elisa Canossa at the Royal Horseguards in London.
