SEEMO will award a prize for the best human rights-related photograph shot in South East Europe. Up to five photographs taken during 2008 and before the application deadline of 19 April 2009 may be submitted per applicant. Photos should be in 300dpi resolution and JPEG format.

An exhibition of the winning photographs and selected works will open at the New Moment Gallery in Belgrade in the second half of May 2009.
