“Children in Focus”
This year we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC@25). UNICEF has planned several activities to mark this milestone in Sri Lanka. One key activity is a photography competition called ‘Chidlren in Focus’ which UNICEF is carrying out in partnership with Canon (Metropolitan Group of Companies Sri Lanka) and Rotaract Shutterbug (an initiative by the Rotaract Club of Panadura). The theme for the photo competition is ‘Children of Sri Lanka: life – moments – rights’.
The competition will consist of 3 categories under its theme ‘Children of Sri Lanka: life – moments – rights’; Open pictorial category (Colour), Open pictorial category (Monochrome) and Children’s category (Colour). The winning photographs will be featured in UNICEF Sri Lanka’s calendar and visibility items for 2015. The winner of the Open pictorial category (Colour) will receive a Canon EOS 1200D professional digital camera and the two winners in open pictorial category (Monochrome) and children’s category (Colour) categories will receive Canon G16 professional digital cameras. The winner’s school/institution will receive a photo printer from Canon! Top 3 winners in each category will also receive 3 month course scholarship to Canon-Metropolitan Photo Academy.
The deadline for entries of the photo competition is 15 September 2014.
