EDF 'Picture Equality' Photo Competition 2018
The theme of the competition is Equality and Inclusion of persons with disabilities. According to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, all persons with disabilities have the right to live where and with whom they want, go to a mainstream inclusive school and have a regular job, vote in the elections and go to the movies or sport club as anyone else. Persons with disabilities should not be discriminated against because of their disability. They should receive the support they need to participate in all aspects of life and society as anyone else.
This theme must be implemented into the photo submissions. Feel free to be creative and unique. However, do not stray away from the goal of the theme. Photos which are not relevant will not be considered for the competition.
