Oxford Diasporas Programme Photography Competition

Diasporas: Connecting, Contesting, Converging

Diasporas are one of the most prominent and controversial manifestations of increased globalization. The connection between migrants and people who have stayed at home has profound effects on societies in the country of origin and the country of destination, as well as on the diasporas themselves.

We are particularly looking for images that illustrate how diasporas connect with those back home, others in diaspora and more widely; the conflicting identities of diasporas; and how diasporas converge with other communities.

The winning entries will be awarded cash prizes. They will also be displayed at public events in Oxford and London. Photos will be featured in ODP publications.

Deadline for entries: 29 August 2014

Prizes of £300, £100, and £50
