transnational-queer-underground.net is a place for QUEER* ACTIVISTS and CREATIVE PEOPLE to connect and start COLLABORATING. Dedicated to creating BEAUTY and showing our POWERS while criticising racism, classism, ableism, sexism, hetero-/homonormativity and other forms of oppression. This photo competition is to challenge stereotypical ideas that people have of certain areas, by showing a multitude of places and perspectives. Your perspective. Please only consider submitting for a country if you live there now or have lived there for a while. We like inside perspectives much more than superficial glances.
THE WINNING PICTURE WILL BE DISPLAYED IN THE HEADER IMAGE FOR YOUR COUNTRY AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A GIFT PACKAGE WITH PATCHES, STICKERS AND A HANDPRINTED SHIRT OR TOTE BAG – YOU CHOOSE.
1. Take an original picture of your favourite place, or use a picture you took earlier, and make sure to tell us why this place is special to you.
2. There are three options: send your picture, one or two sentences about the picture, your country and your name and age (if you want) to the art department, upload it below, or upload it on Instagram using the hashtag #PhotoCompetitionTQU.
3. We’ll let you know once your picture is up on the website – now spread the word and invite your friends to vote for your photo.
4. After a month we will let you know if you have won the competition for your country.
