Why go ahead with the contest
At Grup Nodrissa they wish, now more than ever, "promote breastfeeding, that of all mothers confined at home with their baby, along with their partners, older sons and daughters. But surely far from very important people in these moments of their lives, such as their mother, a friend, a sister or adviser ". The breastfeeding promotion group aims to "Give visibility to those mothers, now that they cannot leave the house, for all those babies born in confinement who have not yet been able to almost see the sun."
From Grup Nodrissa explain that in the first editions of the contest, in the late 90s and early 2000s, most of the photos were taken indoors, in privacy. "Then we got the mothers to breastfeed wherever they wanted, and the photographs that came to us were taken anywhere: in public, on the street, at parties, at work", but the photo contest wants to be a reflection of the reality of breastfeeding mothers at the current time of each edition, so in this one, "Quarantined photographs will also be formidable"organizers point out.
