The University of Oxford Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) have recently launched their annual phototography competition focusing on migration, and are inviting Generation Emigration readers to submit entries on this year’s theme, “New Lives and Dreams”.

“We are particularly looking for images that depict the impact that migration has on people’s lived experiences, both in terms of hopes and reasons for moving, as well as the effect that migration has on life in work, communities and homes,” says COMPASS events officer Ida Persson.

“This year’s theme concentrates on the historical and social imprints and traces that are the result of settling in a new place.”

Prizes: £250 and £100 for winning entries and £50 for 10 runners-up. Winning entries will appear in the COMPAS Annual Calendar. All entrants will be sent a copy.

To enter: Submissions should be sent by email to communications@compas.ox.ac.uk by Friday 12 October.

To inspire you, here’s a taste of a few of the winning entries from previous years:
