European Caucasus House (EuCaSa) is Brussels based non profit and non-governmental organization, working towards achieving long-term and sustainable peaceful solutions to potential and ongoing conflicts in the Caucasus region. They aim to have an impact on the behavior of individuals, especially young generations, as well as to help build the conditions needed for lasting peace and democracy. Their proximity to the EU institutions in Brussels provides us with a first hand opportunity to engage EU policy makers who share a common goal in ensuring a sustainable peace throughout the Caucasus region. Motto of the European Caucasus House is “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. If you are less than 18 years old, then you need consent of your parents or legal guardian’s. 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 and Conflict photo competition, the grand jury of experts will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners who will receive a certificate and small gift package from EuCaSas partners. Also, from all entries will be selected 20 best photos, which will be part of Peace and Conflict open air exhibition in July 2015 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.
