The GEM Report is launching a youth photo contest on the topic of education for development with a $500 award for the best photo to support the UNESCO week for peace and sustainable development on 6 March.

Youth between the ages of 18-35 are invited to enter and to capture photographs that clearly portray Sustainable Development Goal 4.7 on Education for sustainable development and global citizenship through activities both inside and outside the classroom.

The contest website states that photographs can cover any of the following sub-themes: Gender equality, human right, peace and nonviolence, global citizenship, sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, health education and cultural diversity. Photographers will also have the chance of seeing their photo printed in the next GEM Report. The closing date is 10 April 2017.
