Theme(s): Document your daily lives within a 3km (1.86 mile) radius
Eligibility: The 3K Project is free and open to all photographers living in the USA, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia.
In January 2017, the President of the United States signed an executive order that would attempt to bar people from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia from entering the U.S. for 90 days. Five months after President Trump signed the initial order, the Supreme Court voted to allow a limited version of the order to take effect and could only ban refugees and travelers who do not have a bona fide relationship to a person in the U.S.
The 3K Project is our response to this order with the intention of showing the similarities of daily life while also embracing the cultural differences of people living in these affected countries. We are asking photographers to document their daily lives within a 3km (1.86 mile) radius and to submit ten photographs for the curators’ consideration. In addition to the seven affected countries and peoples, we also invite participation from photographers living in the United States to showcase the commonalities rather than differences that are highlighted by the mass media.
