The Open Society Foundations and OSA Archivum announce Chachipe Map, the third Decade of Roma Inclusion photography contest
The contest is open to everybody, but in order to be eligible photos must have been taken since the beginning of 2005 in countries participating in the Decade of Roma Inclusion 2005–2015: Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Spain.
The most important goal of the contest is to give photographers—both amateurs and professionals—an opportunity to show how they see Roma in the communities where they live. Chachipe Map seeks non-stereotypical photographs that are free of prejudices, that show Roma and non-Roma living together, that approach topics in an open manner and that might even employ radically new perspectives. It has three categories: Local Hero, Common Denominator, and Dream Come True.
