2017 Photo Submission Competition

CAIR-Chicago’s Ramadan photo competition aims to encourages young Muslims and community members to pick up a camera– or their iPhones– and document their lives as they live them. We shouldn’t rely on the media to tell our stories; rather we have to bring our own narratives and experiences to light. The purpose of this photo competition is to empower young people– of all races, religions, and genders– to tell their own stories and document their lives, and in doing so, challenge misconceptions about their identities and beliefs.
