Wherever you go, your camera is never far away? Capturing the world fascinates you? Are you interested in the topic of migration and development? We have what you are looking for! Caritas International invites you to participate in its photography contest. The awards: a trip abroad, photographic equipment, opportunities to exhibit and much more…

The rules

The rules are simple. You are…

  • at least 18 years old on December 31, 2019;
  • passionate about photography.


Are you still with us?

Then, send us a series of three to six photos on the theme “Stronger societies through migration” by December 31, 2019. Each photo, as well as the series, should be accompanied by a short text (details in the contest rules). The theme can be interpreted broadly: arts, culture, society, economy, politics, etc.

A multitude of prizes

In February 2020, a jury of professional photographers will select 12 finalists. The first one will receive the jury award. The 11 remaining finalists will be in the running for the public award. Caritas International will publish their photo series on its Instagram account (@caritasintbe). After 10 days of voting, the serie with the most ‘likes’ wins the public award.

The 12 finalists will receive personal feedback from the jury (professional photographers). Their pictures might be chosen to be featured in a mobile exhibition in 2020. Some finalists will then also receive one or more qualitative prints of their work.

Eager to participate?

Take your chance! Send us your photos before December 31, 2019 at 23h59 via the form below.
