For the fifth consecutive year, the Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) is running the HART Prize for Human Rights, a competition that aims to engage young people (ages 13-25) with critical, but often under-reported, human rights issues around the world.
HART works with marginalised communities who are deeply affected by conflict, poverty and human rights abuses. These groups have little presence in the international media and their stories frequently go unheard. Through a twin-track programme of advocacy and targeted aid, HART supports and empowers our partners to envisage, plan and deliver projects which address their own priorities.
We are calling for essays and artworks that focus on the political and humanitarian situations faced by our partners in the following countries: Burma, India, Nagorno-Karabakh, Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda and Timor-Leste. Essay and creative submissions must make reference to one or more of the countries in which HART works.
- Senior Essay Category: A trip with HART to Nagorno-Karabakh to meet our partner and experience aid and advocacy first hand. This can be substituted for £500 if the winner prefers.
- Publication/exhibition of your work.
- Optional work experience at the HART office in London.
- An invitation to Tea in the House of Lords.
- Amazon vouchers.
- A signed copy of ‘This Immoral Trade: Slavery in the 21st Century’.
DEADLINE for submissions is 11.59pm 26th February 2016.
