IOM CA launches a photography award and invites University Students and Artists/Photographers (citizens of Central Asia) to submit photographs related to the theme Migrants: An Invisible Force in Central Asia aiming to draw attention and stimulate dialogue around the theme of migration through powerful photography, story writing and open discussions with government and non-government stakeholders, societies and communities; its key goals are raising awareness on migrants’ rights, enhancing tolerance, eliminating xenophobia and racism towards migrants’ and migrant communities.
Central Asia has been a crossroads of goods and people from the days of the Silk Road. Today hundreds of thousands of people move daily across the international borders in search of employment and opportunity, while millions of Central Asians work abroad and remit funds to their families. Migrants are an invisible force which is not always acknowledged. Their presence enriches the countries they reside by their contribution in cultural, social and economic activities. All photographs revealing this underlying power in a realistic or symbolic form are welcome.
