All participants had to submit with their photographs texts which explained or accompanied their series of work. In addition to that, two Central Asian writers, Dr. Nafisa Abdullaeva and Yermek Tursunov were invited by IOM Central Asia to share their own stories by reflecting on the winning photographs of the Artists/Photographers Category.

The exhibition is the result of the IOM CA Photostory Project Award addressed to Artists/Photographers and to University Students from Central Asia, aiming to raise awareness and stimulate dialogue around the themes of migration and migrants’ rights.

It will showcase the photographs and texts of the first three winning Artists/Photographers, a slide show of the first two winners from the University Students category, original stories produced
