In a world with a limited attention span and an overload of information, the complexities and diversity of Palestinian identity and experience often get ignored in favour of oversimplified stereotypes. This year’s EU-UNRWA photo competition, ‘Breaking Down Stereotypes’, invites Palestine refugee youth to challenge these notions through photography. It calls on participants to consider the stereotypes they see in the media and public discourse about Palestine refugees – on a global, regional or local scale – and creatively showcase how these do not always reflect reality.
This year’s photo competition is rooted in the firm belief that Palestine refugees are the best advocates of their own experiences to challenge such misperceptions – that Palestine refugees are not victims, but indeed actors of their own destiny.
The deadline for entry is Monday, 24 October 2015 at 11:59 p.m. No entries will be accepted thereafter
