Skills in Action Photo Competition 2022

Are you an amateur or professional photographer with an interest in youth skills? Don’t miss your chance to take part in the UNESCO-UNEVOC Skills in Action Photo Competition!

You are eligible to participate as long as:

  • you are at least 18 years old
  • you are the owner or copyright holder of the photo entry/entries
  • you have not previously won the Skills in Action Photo Competition

What should my photo show?

Photos should show green and digital skills in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).

We want to see how TVET is preparing young people with green and digital skills for the future. This year's theme is Transforming Youth Skills for the Future and submissions should focus on:

  • TVET for a sustainable future – photos of skilled young people contributing to green societies and economies
  • Preparing for a digital world – photos of digitalization in TVET and training for the digital future of work

Do’s and Don’ts

Do’s

  • Decide on your thematic area(s) of focus. This will ensure that your entry avoids being filtered out for not adhering to the theme.
  • Use a camera that can output high-resolution photos with a minimum of 3000 pixels on the longest side with 300 DPI/PPI setting. Exempted from this are photos taken using mobile phones in the highest resolution (acceptance of this type of entry is based on the quality of the submission).
  • Ensure that you have the consent of the people in the picture, especially if the focus is on a single person.
  • You can make simple edits to the photo but these need to be specified in the submission form.
Don’ts

  • Don't submit an entry of a photo collage (multiple photos on one frame).
  • Don't put watermarks, signature or any overlays on your picture.
  • Don't send pictures that are not related to any of the thematic areas.

When is the submission deadline?
