Global Photo Competition: The Other Side of Migration
A picture is worth a thousand words. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation’s (SDC) Global Programme Migration and Development (GPMD) is launching a global photo competition to highlight the positive aspects of migration and its potential for development. Photographs have the unique ability to evoke emotions to tell a story from a new angle.
How has migration improved your life? Or the life of someone you know? Have you witnessed some of the many positive effects of migration on the lives of migrants and on societies? The overwhelming amount of sad news linked to migration all too often overshadows these positive aspects. This photo competition is about putting the benefits of migration in the spotlight, showing how it contributes to a better society and what it can do for development.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, and in whatever way you or others experience migration and mobility, and its contribution to society and people’s lives – we are looking forward to receiving your photographs.
The competition is open for entries until 15 May 2016. Thank you for forwarding the information to other interested persons.
