Wednesday 26 July, Canberra. UNIC Canberra had the privilege of organising the official launch of the joint UNIC/CIT Photography competition, a program which is also supported by CIT, the CSIRO, the National Gallery of Australia and the Guardian Australia Newspaper.
This is the eighth year of the Competition and we were pleased to see the contenders’ enthusiasm only growing as the years go on.
This year’s theme is the Together Campaign, a global initiative that aims to change negative perceptions and attitudes towards refugees and migrants, and to strengthen the social bond between host countries and communities, and refugees and migrants. It encourages refugees and migrants, and the communities that have benefited from their inclusion to share their stories, and to use their voices to make the world a better place.
