Offer: Call For Submissions: UNiTE Campaign T-Shirt Design Competition

The UNiTE campaign T-Shirt Design Competition has been now officially launched. Young men aged 18 to 25 are invited to use their imagination to prevent and end violence against women and girls and embody the concepts of equality, non-discrimination and respect in their designs. Five winners selected by twenty nine regional and five global judges, and one winner chosen by the Public Vote, will travel to New York to participate in the UN official observance of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, which will take place on 22 November this year at UN Headquarters. Deadline for submissions: September 21, 2011.

About the Campaign

Millions of women and girls worldwide suffer some form of gender-based violence, be it domestic violence, rape, female genital mutilation/cutting, dowry-related killing, trafficking, sexual violence in conflict-related situations, or other manifestations of abuse. In fact, for women and girls 16-44 years old, gender based violence is a major cause of death and disability.

Launched in 2008, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign aims to raise public awareness and increase political will and resources for preventing and ending all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world.

The campaign calls on governments, civil society, women’s organizations, men, young people, the private sector, the media and the entire UN system to join forces in addressing this global pandemic.
