RAMALLAH, May 5, 2011 (WAFA) – The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) Friday announced the results of its 2011 photo competition for young Palestinian refugees.
In a ceremony in Ramallah to launch an exhibit that will travel to Lebanon, Gaza and Jordan, European Union representative in Jerusalem, Christian Berger, and UNRWA officials paid tribute to the photographic talent of the winners.
Organised by UNRWA and the EU along the theme “What you don’t know about my life”, the competition was open to Palestinian refugees aged between 18 and 26 in all of the UN agency’s fields of operation: Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, the West Bank and Jordan.
Young Palestinian refugees were invited to create a series of five photos that would give the viewer an insight into their life; the corners of their house, the alleys of their refugee camp, or the bustle of the town where they live. more
