UNEP/UNESCO and Samsung Engineering Launches Digital Poster Competition for World Environment Day
Seoul, 9 April 2013 – Eco-generation, Samsung Engineering’s Social Responsibility Program, in partnership with United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) starts a visual conversation in Asia and the Pacific around sustainable development – to engage young people in sustainable actions that result in positive environmental benefits in their local communities – through art.
This competition coincides with the objectives of UNertia, a UNEP/UNESCO initiative that empowers young people as change agents and beneficiaries of sustainable development.
Through this digital poster-making competition, youth aged 6 to 24 from the Asia and the Pacific region will have a chance to share their stories of environmental issues pertaining to energy, waste and water in their respective community or country. Entries should demonstrate the issues they are experiencing in these areas and/or the action required to solve them. By sharing these issues and actions, the aim is for youth in Asia and the Pacific to be inspired to engage in sustainable actions in their respective communities. Organizers are looking for captivating, inspiring and effective posters that speak to youth and the general public.
The competition will commence on 22 April during Earth Day and entries will be accepted until 22 May 2013. Winners will be announced on 5 June 2013, during the World Environment Day celebration. Prizes include Samsung ATIV smart PC, Samsung Galaxy
Note and Samsung Galaxy Player and other Samsung devices.
The artwork must be an original work in the form of graphic designs, digital illustrations, or photographs. Any available design applications or programs may be used.
Criteria will be based on clear messaging, creativity/originality and artistic quality, and will be judged through online voting.
The winning digital posters will be used in UNEP/UNESCO communication materials to promote the UNertia Campaign.
