No to violence against women - United Nations European ad competition
Every vote cast will be submitted as an Action to the Say NO - UNITE Campaign. The ad with the most votes will be awarded the Public Prize.
Up to 70% of women experience violence in their lifetime. This is intolerable. Violence against Women can, and must, be stopped.
Contribute to fight this scourge by joining the United Nations and create a newspaper ad that says “No to Violence against Women”.
Under the banner Create4theUN, we are, once again, reaching out to the European creative community, professionals and non-professionals, to invite you to participate in the 2011 European competition.
To engage European citizens we are working with UN Information Centres across Europe and with major newspapers in each country.
The three prizes have been donated by partners in three European countries: Spain, Italy and Portugal. The thirty short-listed entries will be sent to a jury of experts.
To enter the competition you must be a citizen or a resident of Europe. Citizens from all over the world can however get involved: share your favourite ads via social media, vote for them (starting 1 June), or follow us and send your comments on our BLOG.
The Create4theUN competition in partnership with UN Women - the UN’s new entity dedicated to the empowerment of women - is part of the UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign.
