The Ombudsman’s Office, on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, invites to participate in the Photography and Human Rights contest, under the slogan: “The human right to a healthy environment”. The contest is open to people over 18 years old, residents in Costa Rica, who want to express their vision on this topic through expanded photography, that is, the combination of photography with other artistic disciplines such as music, literature or video.
The goal of the contest is to promote respect and defense of the human right to a healthy environment, which was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in July 2022, considering that climate change and environmental degradation are part of the most urgent threats for humanity. The contest also aims to highlight the initiatives and positive actions that are carried out to protect and improve the environment.
Those interested in participating must send their digital works to the email address email@example.com before November 15th, 2023. The rules of the contest can be consulted on the website of the Ombudsman’s Office. The winners will be announced on December 10th, 2023, International Human Rights Day, and will receive cash prizes and recognitions.
