Accademia Apulia UK launches Home, my Place in the World Photography Award 2013
Entries Open: 5th April – Entries Close: 28th May
Finalists Announcement 31st May – Winner Announcement: 21st June
Accademia Apulia UK now welcomes submissions for its online 2013 Photography Award.
Home, my Place in the World is aimed at promoting emerging photographers of all nationalities based in Europe WHOSE WORK EXPLORES THE CONCEPT OF ‘HOME’.
According to the International Organization for Migration, in 2010 the number of migrants worldwide was estimated at 214 million – a figure likely to increase as the world faces economic strife, conflict and environmental shifts. In this context, the concept of ‘home’ or ‘homeland’ takes on a whole new meaning. Whilst in the past homeland was represented by one’s place of birth, now it is the place where one feels most at home. From this perspective, ‘political’ barriers between states lose their meaning with everyone becoming citizen of the world.
Submissions for this edition will pay tribute to the concepts of homeland, identity, tribalism and social integration, positive and negative.
Home, my Place in the World is under the Patronage of Amnesty International, the British Council
