The ILO Youth Employment Programme recently organized a photo contest to shed light on youth employment issues and the challenges young people face in the workplace. We wish to thank the hundreds of people from all over the world who have sent us their amazing pictures!
The jury has just made a selection of the best photos for the 'Global category'. The winners will be soon contacted by our team! Stay tuned to see the winning photos!
At the end of 2012, the ILO Youth Employment Programme launched a photo contest that focused on young people at work. The photo contest was organized in partnership with the ILO Decent Work Technical Support Team and Country Office for Central and Eastern Europe in Budapest, and financed by The MasterCard Foundation
The objective of the contest was to highlight the challenges young people face in the workplace, as well as propose innovative ideas to address them. Participants were invited to capture youth at work (in different places and under various conditions) in a creative and original manner. Photographers were asked to focus specifically on working conditions, gender barriers, discrimination, informality, entrepreneurship, working poverty, migration, precarious work, and the rural economy, among others.
The jury has just taken a decision and will soon award a total of five prizes in two categories:
Global: A selection made from all photo entries
1) Best photo: USD 1000
2) Second best photo: USD 500
3) Youth prize (entries of persons aged 18-29 years): USD 800
Regional: A selection made from photo entries from the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region
4) CEE best photo: USD 1000
5) CEE youth prize (entries of persons aged 18-29 years): USD 800
Stay tuned to see the winning photos!
The winning photos will be displayed in an online photo exhibition.
Participants were invited to submit up to a maximum of five photos per person by no later than 15 April 2013 at 23:59 (European Central Time).
