Photography Competition: “Human Rights. My Rights. Your Rights. Triggered!”

The Background

The Nuremberg Center for Human Rights (Nürnberger Menschenrechtszentrum e.V. – NMRZ) advocates for human rights protection locally as well as nationally and internationally.

In 2014 the photography competition “Human rights. My Rights. Your Rights. Triggered!” was created in order to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the NMRZ.

In 2016, the NMRZ invited people for the second time to give a photographic profile to human rights.

Now in 2018, in occasion of the universal periodic review of Germany by the UN Human Rights Council, the focus will be on the protection and promotion of human rights inside the country and beyond.

The Task

Choose an article from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and interpret it through a series of photos (between 2 and 4), which have to be connected by the same line of thought.

Send it by post on a digital data carrier (300 DPI – TIFF – Adobe-RGB – max. page length 80cm) as well as in printed A4 page format.

Participants: The competition is directed to EVERYONE who is passionate about photography and is interested in issues concerning human rights.

Deadline: the work can be sent at the NMRZ office until the 15th of January.

By handing in their work, the participants agree to the publication, exposition and the non-commercial use of the pictures by the NMRZ and the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
