Participate in the UNESCO photo contest and promote sport values worldwide.

Share one photo with us which captures the power of sport values and their impact on young people within your community. The best 15 photos will be published in a UNESCO photo book on sport values and exhibited at the organisation’s headquarters.

Sport values such as fairness, equity, respect or inclusion can equip young people with the knowledge and skills needed to tackle 21st century challenges. Engagement in targeted sport-values education programmes contributes to the development of self-confidence, healthy lifestyle choices, life skills, and an understanding of rights.

To participate, please send your photo to sportvalues@unesco.orgalong with a 150-200 words testimony/story (in English, French or Spanish) explaining how sport values impact young people in your community, by Thursday 3 December 2015 at 12:00 GMT+1.

Please also indicate your first and last name, together with your contact details and your profession.

  • Dimensions can either be portrait or landscape, and the format can be either portrait, photojournalism, street photos, or sport photos
  • Signatures, photographers’ names, or copyright notices should be submitted along with the photo
