The power of visual instruction in raising awareness for younger generations is paramount in our rapidly evolving globalized community. This stimulates dialogue, fosters mutual understanding, and promotes peace among diverse populations.
The contest officially closes on 15 July 2018. There will be two distinct categories for winners: 14-17 years old, and 18-25 years old. Three winners will be selected from each of these categories on 30 August 2018. First place winners will receive a professional camera. Second place winners will receive a semi-professional camera, and the prize for third place will be a standard-model digital camera. In addition, winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to an awards ceremony. A travelling exhibition of fifty photos which best represent the spirit of the contest will be exhibited in various countries. These photographs will also appear in a professionally bound collection of printed images.
