Global Photo Competition on Migration and Development

Global Photo Competition on Migration and Development

Deadline: May 15, 2016

A picture is worth a thousand words. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation’s (SDC) Global Programme Migration and Development (GPMD) is launching a global photo competition to highlight the positive aspects of migration and its potential for development. Photographs have the unique ability to evoke emotions and to tell a story from a new angle.

How has migration improved your life? Or the life of someone you know? Have you witnessed some of the many positive effects of migration on the lives of migrants and on societies? The overwhelming amount of sad news linked to migration all too often overshadows these positive aspects. This photo competition is about putting the benefits of migration in the spotlight, showing how it contributes to a better society and what it can do for development.


  • Five brand new GoPro HERO4 Black cameras.


  • Whoever you are, wherever you are, and in whatever way you or others experience migration and mobility, and its contribution to society and people’s lives – your photographs are anticipated.
