ILO Photo Contest

The ILO “WORK4YOUTH” Global Photo Contest.

ILO Photo Contest


The ILO Youth Employment Programme is organizing a photo contest to shed light on youth employment issues, the challenges young people face in the workplace as well as their power to overcome them.

The ILO Youth Employment Programme is launching a photo contest focusing on young people at work. The photo contest has been 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 is to highlight the challenges young people face in the workplace, as well as innovative ideas to address them. Photos submitted by participants should capture youth at work (in different places and under various conditions) in a creative and original manner.

Photographers are invited to focus specifically on working conditions, gender barriers, discrimination, informality, entrepreneurship, working poverty, migration, precarious work, and the rural economy, among others.

A jury will 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

The winning photos will be displayed in an online photo exhibition.

Participants are 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) with the Official Entry Form. Submissions from all around the world are welcome.
