Client: Having Their Say
Date: 01.2014 – …
Our role: Communication Assistance
The online photo competition starts on January 17th and all young “artists” living in Athens are welcome to participate. Capture your life in all its daily aspects. Pictures can portray anything from a day at school to street protests, from unemployment to reading at the library, from anger to joy. The criterion is that you should try to capture some of the challenges and prospects of being young in Greece.
You can send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send with them your first and last name, age, contact details and a small comment on the idea behind the images. Pictures will be uploaded on the facebook page “Having Their Say“. The deadline for sending in pictures is March 15th.
A jury of professional photographers and academics in the fields of art will pick two pictures they find that best captures young people in Athens’s life; their habits, concerns, aspirations or hopes. In other words, their say.
At the official closing of the Exhibition, to be held on Sunday, April 13, 2014, two scholarships will be awarded in the fields of photography and visual arts.
Also, all pictures that have been sent in during the competition will be exhibited on a big blank board inside the exhibition space at the Eleftherias Park Art Center in Athens. This will happen in connection with the forthcoming exhibition “Having Their Say” which documents the life and prospects of young Europeans today. “Having Their Say” will be hosted from March 28th to April 24th.
About the project
“Having Their Say” is a work in progress exhibition created in connection with “Sea Change”, a photo documentary project portraying the lives of young Europeans, showing how they are affected by the current economic recession and political turmoil, asking questions about future personal prospects. Through “Sea Change” some of the best documentary photographers in Europe give us thought-provoking and novel perspectives on Europe’s current challenges.
“Having Their Say” is organized by the Norwegian Embassy in Athens and OPANDA, Organization for Culture, Sports and Youth of Athens Municipality.
