GMR 2012 - UNESCO Art Contest

"Youth, skills and work: What skills do you need to create a better future? "

UNESCO is running an artwork contest for young people on the theme of youth, skills and work - the focus of the forthcoming 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report

The winner’s work will be used in the report.

The artwork should illustrate ideas linked to youth, education, skills and the world of work. Some related questions are:

  • Are young people leaving school with the skills they need to survive and thrive in society?
  • How can we make sure that all young people – especially those who face disadvantages – get a chance to learn job skills?
  • Are employers and governments doing their best to match up skills and jobs?
  • How can education help young people avoid unemployment – or being trapped in low-paid, insecure work? 

Terms and Conditions:


  • The winning artwork will be used for the 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report on youth, skills and work.
  • The submission may be artwork of any size (between A5 and A3 or equivalent). 
  • Submissions can be in the form of photos, drawings, paintings, computer-generated images etc. 
  • Submissions can be in electronic format or on paper. Each artwork should be accompanied by a short artist biography and description of the work in relation to the theme of the contest. 

Notes: If electronic files only are submitted, a high-definition version (in PDF or JPEG) is required. 
UNESCO preferes the artwork to be accompanied by a standard to high-resolution PDF file in A4 format for viewing by the jury.
