‘Family Connections’

How does our family connect us to our roots, culture, traditions, attitudes and future? Which connections define a family and make us belong? How do these connections adapt to changing worlds, technology, conflict, love and loss?

At a time when the importance and fragility of family connections have come into sharp focus with pandemic restrictions and war, the competition invites photographers to submit a series of 8-20 photos exploring their artistic, social and above all personal interpretations around the theme of ‘family connections’. 

shortlist will be announced at the end of February 2023, and the final winners will be announced in March 2023.

There will be a €1,000 prize for a winner from each of the countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). Winners will also be featured in an interview on the EU NEIGHBOURS east website.
