EVENT: Photo Competition: Decent Work and People with Disabilities

Posted on 25 October 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Employment, Events and Conferences, Opportunities | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This announcement from Debra A. Perry, Senior Specialist in Vocational Rehabilitation, International Labour Office, has been circulating within the international disability community. It has been slightly modified by We Can Do.

Dear Colleagues,

As organizations and agencies interested in decent work and persons with disabilities, I am asking you to publicize or get actively involved in an ILO/DPI/Irish Aid regional Asia-Pacific awareness campaign to promote the UN International Day of Disabled Persons. The theme of the campaign this year is Decent Work and People with Disabilities. The campaign centers
around a photo contest that will be launched in Bangkok on 25 October at 10:30 AM and will close at noon on 21 November. The timeframe is short but the opportunity to promote decent work and disabled persons is great. However, we need your help!

Would you please help in promoting this event by sending out the press release, invitation to participate and other materials? We encourage you to contact the local ILO office in your country, which may be already translating the documents (ask for the media focal point) or, if translation is not necessary, to send it to interested stakeholders. These might include media contacts, photo clubs (just try www.google.com in your country and search for photography clubs to get a list), your organisation’s network, universities with media or photography programmes, or through other networks or organizations that you think will be interested.

Please also consider getting directly involved by submitting a photo! You, your family members or friends are most welcome to submit a photo according to the Terms and Conditions of the competition. All your questions–including the Terms and Conditions–should be answered on the web site for the competition, www.jigsaw-communications.com/ILO.

We hope the contest will be a success but more importantly we want to get the messages about decent work and disability out to as many people as possible and to get people involved in promoting positive images about disabled persons working or advocating for their rights to decent work.

Please review the attached materials for your information and please distribute them as soon as possible.

Many thanks for your help!

Best Regards,

Debra

Thanks, Bill Velicky, for alerting me to the problem–the link should be working now.

Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a
top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and
don’t manage to get anything done.
