The First Education International World Wide Photo Contest

Do you have an eye for photography??

What does quality education actually look like to you?

Education International (EI) is launching its first world-wide photo contest as part of the Unite for Quality Education Campaign. Educational International‘s goal is to capture images of teaching and learning conditions in different countries and regions.

During upcoming global culmination events of the Unite for Quality Education Campaign, EI will highlight the importance of quality education all over the world through pictures taken by educators and other members of learning communities.

Photos taken for the contest should help portray the diverse situations in which teaching and learning take place in South Africa and around the world as part of the global teaching community.

The photos need to show the importance of teachers, of learning environments, or of teaching tools – the three pillars of quality education as defined by EI.

EI will select the photographs that best depict the elements described above and will organise an exhibition at its headquarters in Brussels on World Teachers’ Day on 5 October 2014. Some of the pictures will also be part of a photo-book that will be handed to UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, in New York. The photo contest will include a raffle in which three lucky participants will win an iPad mini.
