In November 2008, the Open Society Institute and OSA Archivum announced an online photography contest entitled Chachipe Youth. (Chachipe means “truth” or “reality” in Romanes.) Held under the Decade of Roma Inclusion 2005–2015, the contest was open to young people between the ages of 12 and 25 who had taken photos about Roma and their lives since the beginning of 2005 in countries participating in the Decade. The aims of Chachipe were to help combat visual stereotypes associated with Roma and to present Roma people and Roma culture sensitively and artistically. More than 1,400 photos were submitted for judging, and the international jury selected winners in eight categories and awarded special prizes to two younger photographers. In addition to the winning photos, the exhibition features a selection of 88 photographs entered in the contest.
