What is the UNCRC?
30 years ago, world leaders made a historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child – an international agreement on childhood.
It’s become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives around the world.
But still, not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood. Still, too many childhoods are cut short.
It is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfil their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all. They must commit to making sure every child, has every right.
Our friends at UNICEF are looking for great photographs that they can use to help people learn about the UNCRC, which means that there’s a chance your entry will be exhibited globally!
You should include approximately 50 words explaining why your photograph links to one (or more) aspects of the UNCRC.
All entries will receive a house point. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age section.
Winning entries from the whole of BIS HCMC will be chosen to represent the school in the NAE Global Campus Photographers of the Year 2019/2020 Competition.
