Mapping Places Contest 2022: Share your experiences of domestic places

Read in Catalan, English, Spanish

We invite you to share your experiences of the places where you live by means of a photograph and descriptive text.

Closing date for submissions is 31 May 2022 at 24:00 CET


The theme of this second edition is domestic places, your experiences with them. We invite you to share with us the experience of entering your home; your favourite corner; the first thing you see when you wake up; the armchair where you sit down to read a book; the window through which you look outside while sharing a meal; the plants you water on your balcony; that object on a shelf that brings back memories; the stories of those who once lived in the same place and the stories you live out when you are at home. 



First Prize: 200 Euros
Second Prize: 150 Euros
Third Prize: 100 Euros
4 Fourth Prizes: 50 Euros each
