Despite the coronavirus pandemic, our photo competition is still on – and we have extended our deadline for you to submit the photos.
However, we have no choice to postpone the prize for the winner – a trip to Brussels –  to a later date.
We will regularly update you with information, so stay tuned and stay safe!



Do you have an eye for the world around you but especially to injustice and struggles from below?

Are you angered by inequality and want to put a spotlight on the problem?

Or do you just want to give a voice to those usually forgotten?

If so, get involved and share your images!


Win a trip to Brussels for two people.

The ten pictures with most ‘likes’ on Instagram will be shortlisted. The winner will be selected by a jury.

The prize? A trip to Brussels and two nights in a hotel for two.
