The Office of the European Union Representative in Jerusalem is organizing a Photo Marathon for young European photographers to the West Bank from Sunday 22 until Saturday 28 March 2020.


Through this one-week visit, the selected European photographers will join young Palestinian photographers and tour areas across the West Bank to capture different aspects of Palestinian life. The group will visit communities and places where the EU and its Member States have been working to support the Palestinian people.


This opportunity is open for young photographers (between 21 and 35 years old) from the European Union Member States. The EU covers all associated flight tickets and local costs (transportation and accommodation).


For those interested, please send us your application to the EU Press Team (emails below) including the following:

  •  Resume/CV
  •  A portfolio of your photography work
  •  Motivation letter (please include your motivation behind your participation and the means to be employed to ensure a wide dissemination of the outcome of this visit in Europe)

Priority will be given to photographers who did not visit the occupied Palestinian territory previously.

The outcome of the visit (final photos selection) will be exhibited in Palestine and Europe.


Full applications should be sent to the emails below no later than 20 February 2020. A confirmation of the selected will be sent by 4 March 2020 at the latest. 


*Note: the European Union preserves the right to use the photos delivered during the visit in any communications after receiving the consent of the photographer.
