Celebrate the Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with us
Without journalists many human rights abuses would never be uncovered. In this 60th anniversary year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Internews and the Every Human Has Rights Campaign would like to acknowledge the great contribution media makes in ensuring the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is upheld by societies.
Competition is open!
Internews is inviting mainstream and citizen journalists from around the world to participate in its Human Rights Media competition by submitting world and current affairs reports that have been published or broadcast after the 15th of September 2007 and which could be used to illustrate one or several articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in a context that is relevant to the issues facing our world today. Submitted reports will have to explicitly refer to those human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration.
Read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and illustrate it with your work.
60 years later, show how the UDHR is relevant and contemporary by linking it with issues affecting your local audiences or readers and with the hot topics on the international agenda such as climate change, food security and migration.
Deadline for applications:
Applications will be accepted until 15 September 2008, midnight, Paris time.
