The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) Multimedia Competition was launched in 2018 by the Centre for Human Rights with four creative categories: still image; audio-visual; oral/audio and written. This competition was open strictly to staff and students of the University of Pretoria. They were invited to think creatively around the specific articles in the UDHR and submit entries under these categories.
The competition was organised to commemorate the 70thanniversary of the adoption of the UDHR by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948. The creative categories of the competition were richly attempted by staff and students.
The UDHR is a concise statement of 30 unique interdependent, indivisible and interrelated human rights applying to everyone, everywhere. In the 70 years of its existence, the 30 human rights in the UDHR have become part of binding international, regional, sub-regional and national laws across the globe. These rights have also inspired the emergence of more elaborate human rights documents, enforceable treaties, treaty bodies, independent and quasi-judicial pronouncements and human rights campaign across the globe.
The competition was entered by more than 70 students and staff from across the University of Pretoria community. From the 70 plus entries only two individuals were selected from each of the categories. The Centre for Human Rights wishes to congratulate all the participants for their submissions.
