HUMAN RIGHTS DAY AND 60th Anniversary of the UDHR
 On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the
 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The Declaration has been and
 continues to be a source of inspiration for national and international efforts to
 promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms.

 The theme for 2008 is “Dignity and justice for all of us,” reinforcing the vision of the
 UDHR as a commitment to universal dignity and justice. It is not a luxury or a wish-
 list. The UDHR and its core values; inherent human dignity, non-discrimination,
 equality, fairness and universality, apply to everyone, everywhere and always. The
 Declaration is universal, enduring and vibrant, and it concerns us all.


 To celebrate the UDHR’s 60th Anniversary, the United Nations through the Office of
 the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) - Regional Office for
 the Pacific and the United Nations United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
 Organization (UNESCO) is holding a                poster competition for ALL.

 Posters should depict your vision for “Dignity and Justice for All in the Pacific”.
 Posters will be accepted in the following categories:
       Primary School (years 1 – 8)
       Secondary School (years 9-13)
       General Community (community groups, individuals, anyone!)
 There will be national and regional winners in each category. One entry will be
 selected for reproduction as a Pacific Human Rights Poster.

 Entries should be submitted by 28 February 2009 to the national offices identified on
 the reverse of the flyer.

 “It is our duty to ensure that these rights are a living reality - that they are known, understood and enjoyed by
 everyone, everywhere. It is often those who most need their human rights protected, who also need to be
 informed that the Declaration exists - and that it exists for them.”
