crazy year



Deadline: 28/02/2021



The year ‘2020’ brought with it multiple historical events and will be remembered by future generations for many reasons. It was a panic-inducing year for all of us. With each passing month came a shock, be it the Black Lives Matter protests, an explosion at the Port of Beirut, war in Nagorno-Karabakh, the cancelation of the Summer Olympic games, and of course, the US presidential election. It started off like a Hollywood movie with cities shut down due to a pandemic and the human population on the verge of extinction. However, amidst all the ‘2020’ chaos, there were some good things happening. For instance, a considerable increase in the wildlife population, a drastic reduction in pollution levels, and the launch of a Disney LGBTQ+ character are only some of the positive stories from the last year. We want to see your version of the events of 2020 through “The Crazy Year is Over” photo story.
