“Reclaiming your Rights” 2019 Photo Competition
What does access to reclaiming your rights look like to persons with disabilities in the European Union?
How does one capture what justice looks like in a single image, let alone access to it? We are extending the question to you in an appeal to your creativity for this year’s EDF photo competition “Reclaiming your Rights”.
Whether it be portraits of activists, survivors, images of voting, court proceedings, rallies, speeches, etc., we are looking for engaging visuals that put forward the experience of people with disabilities throughout the political, legal and justice system – in a single photograph, of which three will be selected for prizes. Furthermore, as part of the Just4All project launched last November, some of the submitted images will be used to illustrate a report compiling positive practices currently facilitating access to justice for persons with disabilities in the European Union.
Thank you to the Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People for granting us permission to borrow and share their archive photo of Chris Hughes (1961-2018) a relentless and beloved activist who fought for disability and LGBT+ rights in the UK until his passing last November. We were inspired by this image of uncompromised demands for access and justice for all, as well as by Chris’ advocacy legacy. We hope you are too.
