Children’s poster competition for World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day 2024
Art has the power to shed light on important issues that some people may not be aware of. Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are one example. These are a group of 20 debilitating infections that affect more than one billion people in the world’s poorest communities.
NTDs are mostly driven by the surroundings people live in, such as low-quality housing and inadequate water, sanitation and health services. Without treatment, they can cause long-term health problems affecting people’s wellbeing and future.
Send us a hand-drawn poster using any medium you like, on the theme Shine a Light on neglected tropical diseases. The poster should be no bigger than A3 size. The competition ends on Friday 19 January.
Email your poster to email@example.com as a high-resolution photograph, and in JPEG or PNG format. The file size must be at least 1MB and should not exceed 20MB.
Please give us the following information with your poster:
There will be 3 winners for each category (8-11), (12-14), (14-16) years, chosen by a panel of artists and NTD experts. Winners will receive art supplies and the opportunity to attend an event seeking to raise awareness of NTDs in Parliament.
Winners will be notified the week prior to World NTD Day on 30 January to ensure that they can attend the event in Parliament.
