Prize Winners Announced in Rohingya Photography Competition

On 5 December 2020, the Prize Winners were announced from the Rohingya Photography Competition which had been running for many months and attracted an amazing array of submissions from Rohingya refugees, humanitarian workers, well-known photographers, and many others. The Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) is honoured to be a co-sponsor of the Competition – the results of which can be found here including video of the Prize Announcement to which HRREC Director John Packer contributed.

It is intended that the winning photographs will be featured in an exhibition at uOttawa when conditions permit; in the meantime, an online gallery exhibition is being organised by the Oxford Human Rights Festival in the UK. A book is also planned with a selection of photographs and other contributions about the situation prevailing in the world’s largest refugee camp in Kutupalong near Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, where one million Rohingya are struggling to survive and await return to their homeland in Northwestern Myanmar.
