In light of the 2011 International Year and European Year of Volunteering, the International Year of Youth and following the recommendations of the 11th Mediterranean Conference of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent, the CCM has launched its third photo competition for Mediterranean Youth on ¨Youth and Volunteering.¨
The theme of the competition can be interpreted in different ways by each participant and it can be related with a diverse range of aspects, such as international disasters, services offered to the local communities, youth actively volunteering, principals and values in action, intergenerational and intercultural dialogue, and many more.
The competition is directed at youth, between the ages of 18 and 30, from Mediterranean countries and neighbouring ones. The criteria by which the pictures will be judged are the following: the relationship between the picture and the proposed theme, the artistic quality of the picture, its originality and its ability to convey the principles and values of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
The deadline for entries will be the first of June. The first place prize will be the opportunity to participate in the RC/RC Youth Camp in the Mediterranean, Atlantis VII, which will take place the first week of July 2011.
The selection of the best pictures will be displayed in Atlantis and will be published on the CCM website.
From here we encourage all of you to participate!!!
Deadline: June 1st 2011
