TakingITGlobal Stories from Syria Global Gallery Contest 2016 ($USD 600 Prize)

Application Deadline: March 30th 2016

Due to the rise of a critically urgent issue concerning refugees in the Arab world, communities needs to come together to address the humanitarian crisis. As a way of showing support and encouraging solidarity we invite you to share your stories from Syria through creative artwork (Images or videos). These visual representations will not only be an opportunity to share stories with thousands of people around the world, but will also help inspire action from individuals, organizations, and policy-makers.

To participate in Stories from Syria, you are encouraged to create art pieces on the following themes:

  1. Images that reflect the current circumstances and crises that Syrian people and/or refugees are facing wherever they are.
  2. Images that reflect your memories of Syria and feelings towards this beautiful country. What does it remind you of? (the places you visited, the people, the food, special events, etc.)

The aim is to increase the awareness of the refugee crisis in the international community as well as document the beautiful memories that we would like to share and remember together.


  • Prize winners must be 13-30 years old.

The plan is to curate an online collection that will be showcased at different events and exhibitions. With that in mind, please include a text description of up to 500 words with the image or video that you submit.
