Following the great success of the previous editions of the ‘I Live By The Sea International Youth Contest’, Today We Have are partnering with the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development to launch this year’s edition of the contest.
Just like in the previous edition, the goal is to spread and share knowledge about marine environments and marine protection, and create positive attitudes towards the sea through education on the importance and the beauty of marine environments.
Children and teenagers from all over the world are invited to submit a story of “their sea” using any type of visual arts. Parents, teachers and educators are also invited to publicise the contest around their families, friends and colleagues.
The contest will be held in four age categories: 5 to 12, 13 to 15, 16 to 18, and 19 to 21. The deadline is 31 March 2021.
Participants should also submit a short text (in English) describing the story behind their photographs and films. In the films, any form of artistic expression is accepted, from a documentary, to feature, or theatre play, through pantomime, dance or a song. Be creative! The best photos, films and stories will be presented as a part of the EU4Ocean celebrations of the World Oceans Day 2021.
