Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs announces its first International Student Photography Contest. The contest is part of Ethics for a Connected World, a three-year global education project in celebration of the 2014 Carnegie Council Centennial.
The Centennial project connects people across the globe in joint pursuit of Andrew Carnegie's vision for global responsibility—what we call a "global ethic." Is there such a thing? If not, should we try to create one?
In a world with tremendous diversity of beliefs and cultures, how do we live together amicably? Carnegie Council believes that part of the answer lies in pluralism—the appreciation of diversity and differences, with recognition of and respect for shared values.
Students everywhere can take part in this project by submitting photography that depicts the concept of living with differences.
The photography contest will be conducted via Carnegie Council's online Global Ethics Network, a social media platform for exploring the role of ethics in international affairs through multimedia resources.
All students of every nationality are eligible. Non-students will be disqualified. The minimum age is 13.
PHOTO TOPIC: Pluralism: Living with Differences.
CONTEST DEADLINE: October 31, 2013
