The winner of the EMA photo competition is Marta Moreno Ibanez!

Congratulations Marta for your picture with the title "Beyond the Olympic Games” taken in Toliara, Madagascar.

Marta’s picture was selected by most of the voters at the GA in Prague. Congratulations on a 50€ Amazon Bookstore Voucher.

We also thank Greta Sanches Corrêa, Amornched Jinda-Apriaksa, Cherelle Eid, Bayes Ahmed, Megan Hennessy, Muhammad Adnan Siddique and Xiaohan Zhou for their participation and their great submissions reflecting the EMANATE’s topic: “The Power of Sports: Bringing People together”. Thank you also to everyone who voted at the GA.

And now, a short description of the winning picture:
“Olympic games” organised by a group of volunteers of the NGO Bel Avenir in Toliara (Madagascar).
This picture challenges our concept of “Olympic Games”, which we relate to greatness, success, and magnificence. If we take a closer look at the most disadvantaged regions of the world, we will see a reality that the Olympic Games do not show: humbleness, poverty, and inequality. Despite these contradictions, there is a positive and encouraging fact: we are all born humans. We all experience feelings and emotions, hopes and dreams. We share a passion for sports.
