Launched this year by IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action) and renowned photographer and humanitarian, REZA, Children's Eyes On Earth International Youth Photography Contest, Festival and Exhibition 2012 aims to raise awareness of environmental issues through the eyes of young people and their photographs.
This exciting global initiative will give children and teenagers a platform to show how they see the natural world, and the chance to discover some of the challenges currently facing our planet. By seeing through their eyes, it is our hope that adults will also be inspired to take action, too.
With the theme I Love Nature, I Fear Pollution, the Contest is a unique opportunity for young people to use photography to highlight crucial issues and share their vision with others throughout the international community.
A panel of International Jury and Advisory Board Members will choose the three winning images after the closing date.
The Festival and Exhibition will be a chance to view the Contest entries and winning photographs. An international event, the Festival and Exhibition will visit major cities around the world and will raise global awareness about environmental issues.
It’s the aim of both IDEA and REZA that projects such as CEOE will encourage young people to care for the world around them and help to increase global awareness of crucial environmental issues.
