Amid ongoing conflict characterized by violence, forced migration, blockade and poverty, young Palestine refugees continue their struggle to achieve their dreams while remaining hopeful and maintaining their resilience. The determination of young Palestine refugees throughout the decades is a remarkable characteristic of the Palestine refugee community.
This year’s EU-UNRWA Photography Competition is based on two things: the fact that Palestine refugees are best positioned to describe their own experiences and the belief that a picture is worth a thousand words. The EU-UNRWA Photography Competition is an open invitation to all young Palestine refugees to capture their hopes, dreams, challenges and moments of victory in photos and project them to the world.
The EU-UNRWA 2015 photography competition is made possible through generous funding from the European Union.
