To celebrate 100 years of the Peace Palace, The Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict, with the support of the Municipality of The Hague is running an online contest for artists from around the world to share their work, telling a story of peace. The artwork can be your personal experience with peace, someone who inspires peace, an act showing peace, or an ideal peaceful situation. The artwork can be a photo, a painting or a graphic design. The 5 winners will have their artwork displayed in a large exhibition in The Hague from August until September, celebrating the 100 years of Peace Palace. Open to everyone, the deadline for submitting your artwork is: 10 April 2013.
This online contest is managed by GPPAC, a global network of civil society active in conflict prevention and peacebuilding across the world, facilitated on the Peace Portal.
August 28th marks the centennial anniversary of the Peace Palace in The Hague. Since its inauguration, the Peace Palace has become a worldwide icon of Peace and Justice. A chain of special events are scheduled between August 28th and September 21st, the UN Day of Peace, to emphasize The Netherlands’ unwavering commitment to a better world in which conflicts are settled peacefully.
