UNESCO Call for Proposals: Photographs on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity

Deadline: 15 April 2017

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is inviting professional photographers from all over the world to send a sample of their best photographs illustrating journalists while doing their job and in particular on the issues of the safety of journalists and impunity for crimes against them.

As the United Nations agency with a specific mandate to promote “the free flow of ideas by word and image”, UNESCO aims to promote freedom of expression and its corollary of press freedom, to reinforce journalists’ safety and tackling impunity, in the framework of the United Nations Plan of Action on The Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity. The safety of journalists and combatting impunity are central elements to support freedom of expression and press freedom.

UNESCO is looking for images that illustrate journalists working in different situations, for example, international and/or local journalists covering demonstrations, trials, major public events, investigations on corruption, citizen journalists, journalists  embedded with police or the military, journalists reporting from a conflict zone, journalists in protected vehicles or in front of media houses with protection or any other case in which journalists, including women reporters, are at work in sensitive situations.

    • Maximum of 12 photographs;
    • Color, minimum resolution: 350 dpi, minimum size: A4;
    • Photo caption in English or French for each photograph with information (place, time, subject);
