Partners of the United Nations Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI), East Asia and the Pacific (EAP) and South Asia (SA) invite interested youngsters to enter the 4th drawing contest held to promote gender equality in education.
The "Gender Drawing Contest 2012" is open to all nationals and residents in Asia and the Pacific. Contestants must be 18 years of age or younger.
To enter, submit a drawing that shows what you think a teacher can do to ensure girls and boys benefit equally from quality education. Each participant may submit only one drawing.
Drawings must be A4 size and can be in colour or black-and-white.
You can use any material you like, such as crayons, pencils and paint.
Fifteen winning drawings will be featured in a notebook and a lesson plan for teachers produced by UNGEI (EAP and SA), which will be distributed widely throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
The winners will receive official certificates of merit and three copies of the notebook each.
The winning drawings will be posted on the organisers' websites. All entries will be used by UNGEI partner agencies in their publications, presentations, websites and promotional and advocacy materials.
Your drawing (with your full name, age, sex and country written on the back of it) should be sent along with the registration form by post to Unesco Bangkok, APPEAL Unit, 920 Sukhumvit Road, Phra Khanong, Klong Toey, Bangkok 10110, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your entry should arrive no later than Nov 30.
Digital submissions of drawings must be in a TIFF, EPS or JPEG format with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.
The winners will be announced in December.
