Extended Deadline: 15 January 2012
Open to: everybody
The Open Society Foundations and OSA Archivum announce the Chachipe Map photography contest.
The contest is open to everybody, but in order to be eligible photos must have been taken since the beginning of 2005 in countries participating in the Decade of Roma Inclusion 2005–2015: Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Spain.
The most important goal of the contest is to give photographers—both amateurs and professionals—an opportunity to show how they see Roma in the communities where they live. Chachipe Map seeks non-stereotypical photographs that are free of prejudices, that show Roma and non-Roma living together, that approach topics in an open manner and that might even employ radically new perspectives. It has three categories: Local Hero, Common Denominator, and Dream Come True.
Photos can be uploaded on the contest’s website at www.chachipe.org between October 19 and November 20, 2011. The detailed call for entries can also be found there, in English and in the national languages of the Decade countries.
The international jury will award 3 prizes in each category—of 1000, 500 and 300 Euros, respectively—and may also award special prizes. Winners will be announced on the Chachipe Map website in December 2011, and selected photos will be exhibited at OSA Archivum in Budapest in the beginning of 2012.

Chachipe Map is the third Chachipe photography contest. Chachipe means “truth” or “reality” in Romanes, and it can also mean “right.”
“This contest is an opportunity for you to use photos to share with others the stories that have happened to you and that create a link among you, us, Roma and non-Roma. It provides a possibility for your stories to not only be ones that are told home among your friends, but also to be experiences that can have an effect in much wider circles. They can be past experiences, starting from 2005. Perhaps they happened just yesterday. Or you can seek them out precisely because of the contest.
Who is Chachipe Map for?
It doesn’t matter whether you are Roma or not, only that you feel it’s important to take time to show how you see the world around you. It doesn’t matter what technology you have at your disposal, whether you use your camera as a hobby or deal with photography as a profession. What’s important is that you are willing to share with us and with others your experiences and thoughts related to any of the three themes—Local Hero, Common Denominator, Dream Come True. We hope that your photos will reveal a world where differences can become beauty, where actions done together and for each other can fill us all with confidence. Naturally we will judge the photos’ creativity and new perspectives from the viewpoints of both theme and execution.
I wish the other jury members and myself much hard work and much thought in the pursuit of ever more interesting photos.”
– Gabriella Csizek

Decade of Roma Inclusion 2005–2015
The Decade of Roma Inclusion 2005–2015 is an unprecedented political commitment by European governments to improve the socio-economic status and social inclusion of Roma. The twelve countries currently taking part in the Decade are Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Spain.
The Decade is an international initiative that brings together governments, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, as well as Roma civil society, to accelerate progress toward improving the welfare of Roma and to review such progress in a transparent and quantifiable way. The Decade focuses on the priority areas of education, employment, health and housing, and commits governments to take into account the other core issues of poverty, discrimination and gender mainstreaming.
