Cartoon contest on climate change

We are pleased to announce the official opening of a cartoon contest on climate change and human development in Asia-Pacific, in partnership with UNDP Asia-Pacific Regional Centre.
The contest aims to encourage people from Asia-Pacific developing countries to portray development issues related to climate change from a people’s perspective. Submissions are invited from programme countries in the region to contribute to capacity development and advocacy in creative ways to bring people to the centre of climate change and human development debates.

The call for submissions for the contest will run from 15 November 2011 until 1 February 2012.
All nationals from UNDP programme countries in Asia-Pacific (please see website below for the full list of countries) are invited to participate. The contest carries a financial award for winners in support of their work highlighting people’s concerns on climate change.

Each applicant will be required to submit a copy of one original cartoon which will be judged by an international panel of external experts. Their work will be portrayed at an international exhibition in Bangkok, Thailand in 2012.

In addition, winners may be expected to present their work in workshops, seminars, and other
events (travel-related costs will be covered separately).

For more information on the contest, including eligibility, selection criteria and a detailed

Please use the attached flyer to aid dissemination. All submissions and queries should be made
by 1 February 2012 to cartooncontestasiapacific@hotmail.com

We look forward to some creative submissions from the region!
