Help our local partners realise their vision of hope for their communities
On Monday 19th March we held a prize-giving ceremony for the HART Prize for Human Rights, celebrating all the incredible entries to this year’s competition.
In this record-breaking year, we had 221 entries across all categories, from candidates around the world. Achieving a shortlisted place was tougher than ever and the high standards made it a very difficult decision for our judges. We offer huge appreciation to Agnieszka Kolek from the charity Passion for Freedom for guest judging the creative entries, while Baroness Cox judged the essay categories.
We commend all the work that was entered and hope young artists and writers are encouraged to continue creating thought-provoking pieces and promoting human rights through their work. All participants will receive a certificate to praise their commitment to human rights and for taking part.
Below please find a list of the winners and shortlisted entries for each category. Over the next few days, we will be uploading the winning essays and creative pieces to our blog so you can read, view and more importantly learn about the issues these candidates chose to focus on.
