2020 Photo Competition "Inaccessible Places”

22 September 2020


We are looking for photos showing inaccessible places for persons with disabilities(in various areas of life: images of public, private places related to work, leisure, cultural or sportive life, etc.).

Inaccessibility is understood for the purpose of this competition as the lack of appropriate measures, including the inadequate design of places, preventing access to persons with disabilities on an equal basis with others. Thus, inaccessible places also prevent an independent approach, entry, evacuation and/or use of places and facilities by persons with disabilities, and/or pose a risk to the health, safety and welfare to the person with a disabilities when using the inaccessible place.

Who can apply?

EU/EEA citizens or residents from all ages and there is no entry fee. Participation is individual, not as an organization.

What can you submit?

  1. One single high-resolution photo (300dpi) with image description (alt-text).
    Allowed: editing, filters, camera built-in effects.
