The theme of the Contest is “Memory and Reconciliation” and is open to photographers and video makers willing to explore how the process of reconciliation with the past, transitional justice and fight against impunity is key to build a long lasting peace after civil wars and conflicts. Photographers and videomakers, professional or amateurs, are encouraged to capture “moment of reflections” that can be inspired by spaces such as memorials, memory sites, institutional buildings, grassroots movements that symbolise the memory of crimes against humanity or human rights violations occurred or the struggle of resistance or defence of those rights.
The international jury of the Contest is comprised of renowned international photographers such as Giles Duley, Poulomi Basu and experts in documentary advocacy and social campaigns such as Isabelle Gattiker, Karen Oetling and Sam Gregory. Read their interviews on our website and social media, and take part in the contest!
