K2.0 and the Center for Equality and Liberty, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Netherlands, have the pleasure to invite you to the opening of the Pride Photo Award exhibition, on Tuesday, November 21 at 17:30, at the gallery of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Prishtina.

The Pride Photo Award is an annual international photography contest focusing on sexual diversity and gender identity, now visiting Prishtina for the first time after showcases in Amsterdam, Bologna, Jakarta, San Francisco, and Tirana.

Every year, photographers from all over the world are invited to share their most imaginative, challenging and non-stereotypical take on gender and sexuality. An international jury of experts has then selected the best works for this exhibition, out of 3,600 entries by 398 photographers of 70 different nationalities.

The exhibition will be showcased in Prishtina until November 30, 2017. Make sure not to miss it!
