To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Australian Human Rights Commission is holding a photo competition based on the theme - ‘Dignity and justice for all of us’.

The theme reinforces the vision of the Declaration as a commitment to universal dignity and justice, and reinforces how human rights are an inextricable part of our lives – for everyone, everywhere, everyday.

To apply see http://www.humanrights.gov.au/photo_comp/index.html#entry

We're searching for images that reflect the theme of the competition and provide a unique approach to a human rights subject. For some, the photograph will record a moment that celebrates dignity and justice; for others, it will capture fundamental rights and freedoms being recognised; or it may be an observance of what human rights means to you.

Send in your entries and our judging panel will choose a Winner and Highly Commended in each of the three categories: Under 18 (male), Under 18 (female) and 18 and above (age at 30 June 2008).

Winners, Highly Commended and Shortlisted entries in each category will be placed on our website and displayed at the Commission’s annual Human Rights Medals and Awards ceremony on 10 December.
