Visual.ly, UNESCO Launch Infographics Contest on Ending Impunity

Online visual platform Visual.ly in collaboration with the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has launched a competition to raise awareness about impunity as it marks the first year for the UN’s International Day to End Impunity, using Infographics.

The contest winner will be receiving $2,000 from UNESCO

Interested participants should submit work which highlights data compiled by UNESCO on the killings of media workers from 2016 -2013.

According to visual.ly, the goal behind this contest is to create original visual material that will heighten global awareness of the issue of impunity, and its devastating effect on journalists’ safety and freedom of expression. The graphic should have a focus on moving forward, using the data on the current state of things as a point of reference.

The art challenge is to make this grim topic one that online users are eager to share with their social circles while still communicating the seriousness of the issue.

To create your work, go to the blog to get the data at http://blog.visual.ly/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Facts-and-Figure-of-the-DG-Safety-of-Journalists-Report-2014.pdf

All entries to the competition should be licensed under creative commons so that the entries may be used in whole or part as educational materials anywhere. The creative commons attribution 4.0 sign should be included somewhere on the design.

The winning entries will be asked to add the logos of UNESCO and visual.ly, along with their own logo or name.

Send all submissions to contest@visual.ly by October 13 12:00:00 AM PDT.
