Photo Competition on Diversity and Integration
The Photo Exhibition is a part of the Youth Forum “Refugees and Migrants in the New Media in South-East Europe and Central Europe” that aims to discover how the new media in these regions have been reflecting on the migrant and/or refugee crisis and to what extent they contributed to the promotion of diversity. The project is being implemented by Mladiinfo International, together with its project partners, CEI Cooperation Fund and Visegrad fund and is going to take place in Skopje, Macedonia from 30 March to 1 April 2017.
The Youth forum is the follow-up event within the project You(th) Challenging Diversity: Representation of Minorities in the New Media, aiming to foster European citizenship and improve conditions for civic and democratic participation at Union level. This event will tackle yet again the issues of minorities and new media, but mostly in the context of the ongoing migrant and/ or refugee crisis.
Apart from the panel discussions and the workshop that will take place during the Youth Forum in Skopje, Macedonia, a photo exhibition will be organized titled: “Diversity and Integration through the Eyes of Youth” where the best 30 photos from this call will be presented and three winners will be selected. Later on, the photo exhibition will be moved to Slovakia.
Show us your point of view on the topic and therefore express what does the migration mean to you! The photos will be assessed for their message and content!
