Photography competition

Every Global Youth Forum has a unique look and feel - can you capture the spirit of this year’s Forum?  We are looking for photographs which reflect a unique and personal view of your experience at the event.

The photographs can reflect any of the following themes: joy, exchange of cultures, exchange of ideas, exchange of traditions, celebration, teamwork, friendship, fun, first time debating, learning, competitive debating, achievement, judging, debate preparation, passion for debate and open mindedness.

You will be able to view the entries in our online gallery on youthforum.idebate.org

The winning photo will be displayed on the IDEA homepage and social media and announced at the forum’s closing ceremony on Sunday 25 August 2013, where the prize of a fantastic Kindle Fire will be awarded!

How to enter the competition

Send your entry to competitions@youthforum.idebate.org, with GYF Photo Competition in the subject bar and including your name, to enter your photograph in the Global Youth Forum 2013 photography competition.

All entries will be moderated before they are added to the online gallery, which could take a few days so don't worry if you don't see it straight away.

Closing date for entries is midnight on Friday 23 August 2013.

The photographs will be judged after the competition has closed on Friday 23 August 2013 and we will announce the winner and award the prize at the closing ceremony on Sunday 25 August 2013.

The competition will be judged by Sharon Porter, Global Youth Forum Curriculum Director, Steven Nolan, Global Youth Forum Director and Sam Vaux, Communications Director of IDEA Central. The winner will be announced and the prize will be awarded on the last day of the Forum, 25 August 2013. 

Good luck!
