The ILO SafeYouth@Work Project is launching a global media competition to help put youth vision and voice at the centre of discussion on preventing workplace accidents and diseases. The media competition is carried out in conjunction with the International Media Festival for Prevention and the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, and welcomes creative and engaging multimedia submissions that speak to young people.
The SafeYouth@Work Media Competition is an opportunity for young people around the world to show what “Safety and Health at Work” means to them by showcasing innovative ideas, at the International Media Festival for Prevention.
You can spread the word using this SafeYouth@Work Media Competition starter kit:
Submissions can be made by anyone aged 15-24 (at the time of competition registration). Submission categories include film, photography, drawing, music and writing. Young people with a creative idea that doesn’t fit into one of these categories can submit their work through the innovative “Surprise Us!” category. All submissions are required to have been produced after 1 January 2016, however, there is no limit to the number of entries that may be submitted by any one participant.
Winning entries to the SafeYouth@Work media competition will be featured at the XXI World Congress for Safety and Health at Work. Submissions will be presented alongside the International Media Festival for Prevention, before a global audience. In addition, selected winners will be invited to Singapore to share their ideas on safety and health, at the World Congress.
The deadline for submission is 16 July 2017.
