The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has launched a regional photo contest entitled “Latin America and the Caribbean: Through the Eyes of its Youth” for Latin American and Caribbean youth. The contest, which is open to citizens of Latin American and Caribbean countries age 18-30, provides an opportunity for youth in the region to communicate visually the economic and social challenges facing their countries, as well as ideas about how best to build a better future for the region.
Carla Grasso, IMF Deputy Managing Director, announced the launch of the photo contest yesterday during a roundtable event with university students in Lima. “It’s always enlightening and refreshing to engage with young people to learn more about the challenges they see and aspirations they have for the future. The photo contest will be a fantastic opportunity to visualize their perspectives on the region’s economic and social situation and how to improve it,” Ms. Grasso stated.
The contest will accept photo submissions from May 6 to June 30, 2015 and the online voting will run from July 1 to July 31.
