UNESCO4Literacy Photo Contest 2022: Submit by Aug 28

Submissions are invited for UNESCO4Literacy Photo Contest 2022. The last date of submission is 28 August.


Learning spaces are everywhere; in-school, out of school, homes, parks, internet, and community. Wielded thoughtfully, learning spaces and inclusive environments have a very real potential to bring about change and creation of learning opportunities in India.

To celebrate International Literacy Day (8 September 2022), UNESCO New Delhi Office, is launching a social media campaign #UNESCO4Literacy with a Photo Contest to support, value and appreciate the small, but significant learning spaces found in our daily lives. 

On 8 September 2022, the UNESCO Office in New Delhi will announce a total of three winners from the following three categories on our social media, with special honorary mentions of the author/institution. The winning photographs will be displayed at the UNESCO New Delhi premises and will also be exhibited at UNESCO’s launch of its ‘State of the Education Report for India 2022’ to be held at the Maurya Sheraton on 20 September 2022.

They will also be featured on UNESCO New Delhi’s website as well as on all UNESCO official social media platforms. The winners will also receive a copy each of UNESCO New Delhi’s two flagship photo publications!
