Are you an amateur or professional photographer? Passionate about photography? Does your photo show an example of peace building or conflict in your region? Then EuCaSa gives you a chance to let your images speak for you! EuCaSa is Brussels based not-for-profit and non-governmental organization, working towards achieving longterm and sustainable peaceful solutions to potential and ongoing conflicts in the Caucasus region.
They aim to have an impact on the behaviors of individuals, especially young generations, as well as to help build the conditions needed for lasting peace and democracy. Our proximity to the EU institutions in Brussels provides us with a first hand opportunity to engage EU policy makers who share a common goal with us in ensuring a sustainable peace throughout the Caucasus region. Motto of the European Caucasus House: Home is a place where people feel free, safe and tolerated in spite of different religion, cultural, sexual background. The European Caucasian House aims to be the safe-hold for those seeking more democratic, peaceful and tolerant societies.
The competition is open to all photographers aged 18 to 30 (please mention if you are an amateur or professional photographer). You are less then 18 years old, then you need your parents’ or legal guardian’s consent. The participants should be from the Caucasus region and nationals of any of the following countries or regions: Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Russia’s Northern Caucasus region (Dagestan, Chechnya, North Ossetia. etc.).
For the Peace & Conflict photo competition, a „grand jury“ of professional photographers will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners who will receive a certificate and small gift package. Also, from all entries will be selected the 20 best photos, which will become part of Peace & Conflict open air exhibition in July and will be showcased at a subsequent special event in Brussels. The exact date and place of the open air exhibition will be announced in the coming months.
