UNESCO MGIEP Youth lens 2015: The Blue Dot Magazine Photo Competition ($450 Cash Prize)

Application Deadline: Midnight, November 15, 2015 (Indian Standard Time)

Are you between the ages of 18-34 and are you passionate about photography? Then send us your top three photos on the topic of “Education and Crisis” for a chance to win a prize and publish your work in UNESCO MGIEP’s The Blue Dot magazine.

What does education and crisis mean to you?

Whether experiencing devastating earthquakes in Nepal or conflict and displacement in countries such as Syria, students around the world suffer when a crisis strikes. Crises, however, are not only about conflicts or disasters. Poverty, inequality and other factors keep millions of children out of school every year.

Submission Requirement:

  • Submit no more than three (3) photographs per person in a .jpeg, .jpg or .gif format. Photographs must be at least 2,000 pixels wide so that they can be displayed on our website without being stretched or distorted.
  • Please include your full name, date and year of birth, current occupation, affiliation (ex. school, university or employment), an email address where we can contact you, and country of residence.
  • Entries must be accompanied by a caption (approximately 100 words) describing the content and story behind the photo.


The top three winning entries will be published in the January 2016 Issue of The Blue Dot, UNESCO MGIEP’s biannual magazine.

First Prize: $200

Second Prize: $150

Third Prize: $100

Photo entries will be judged based on creativity, quality, originality, relevance, and overall impact. Judging will be conducted by the Communications Team and the Director of UNESCO MGIEP.
