A-Place MAPPING contest 2022 > share your experience of places
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
