'Home, my Place in the World' photography award is launched

Share Article

Accademia Apulia UK now welcomes submissions for its online 2013 Photography Award. Home, my Place in the World is aimed at promoting emerging photographers of all nationalities based in Europe whose work explores the concept of ‘home.’

The concept of 'home' or 'homeland' takes on a whole new meaning. Whilst in the past homeland was represented by one’s place of birth, now it is the place where one feels most at home. From this perspective, ‘political’ barriers between states lose their meaning with everyone becoming citizen of the world.

Submissions for this edition will pay tribute to the concepts of homeland, identity, tribalism and social integration, positive and negative.

Home, my Place in the World is under the Patronage of Amnesty International, the British Council, The European Commission and the International Organisation for Migration.

Entries opened on 5th April and are free. The closing date for entries is 28th May 2013

Entrants will be assessed by leading figures in the field of Photography:

Andreas Brünglinghaus, Head of Photography, Paris College of Art
Anne Williams, Director for Photography, London College of Communication
Francesca Marocchino, Curator, Guimet Museum, Paris
Jennifer Faure Francis, Director of Communications, Philadelphia Museum of Art
