HOME1947 Film & Photography Competition

HOME1947 is a brand new, immersive installation from two-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy which uses interactive mixed-media to reflect on the experiences of people who left their homes during the Partition of British India in 1947, the largest mass migration ever witnessed.

To complement Sharmeen’s new work, we’re inviting you to respond to the themes of HOME1947 by creating a photograph or short film exploring what the word ‘home’ means to you.

The winning entries in both the film and photography categories will be showcased alongside the world premiere of HOME1947 during MIF17. Winners will also be invited to meet Sharmeen and her team, and  receive a £200 voucher to spend on new film or photography equipment!

This is an open competition, and anyone of any age can enter. If you’re interested in photography and film, we want to hear from you. We’re looking for work that’s dynamic, engaging, evocative and original and you don’t need advanced digital skills to enter the competition.

Entries for this competition are now CLOSED.

Please check back on 14 June when the winners will be announced.

We will share images and entries online during the festival.
