Migrant Domestic Workers in Europe Photo Contest

Thank you to all who submitted their images of migrant domestic workers in Europe.

The International Migration Programme of the ILO organized this photo contest in order to explore and to showcase the important and positive contributions that migrant domestic workers in Europe make to the societies they live in. In response, we received over 300 submissions showing a wide range of activities and situations.

Winners were selected by an expert panel of judges that included Karin Pape, coordinator of the International Domestic Worker's Network; Marcel de Bruijne, photographer ; Maria Gallotti, Migration Policy Specialist of the ILO; and Marcel Crozet, photographer of the ILO. The 'Promoting Integration for Migrant Domestic Workers in Europe' project team extends its thanks to these judges for their generosity and their critical expertise.

Below you will find the winning photos of the contest. Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to our winners!
