Picture a Europe without discrimination: Amnesty International launches photo contest
Amnesty International has challenged people across Europe to snap a shot to illustrate their vision of a society free of discrimination. Today, 31 January, marks the launch of its Europe-wide anti-discrimination photo contest. The aim is to mobilise people to express the ideal of a fairer and more inclusive society as creatively and imaginatively as they can. The contest is open to everyone in Europe above the age of 14, excluding professional photographers.
“Let’s get some inspiring images to challenge prejudices and stereotypes and promote diversity. Everyone in Europe can help us change negative social attitudes which generate discrimination. Let’s all deliver a positive message from people to people,” says Nicolas Beger, Director of Amnesty International’s European Institutions Office.
Entries to the contest may be submitted until 31 March. The winning 12 photos will be chosen and used in a calendar and other promotional material to support the Fight Discrimination in Europe campaign. The top three entries will also receive a prize at our awards ceremony to be held in Brussels in May.
