UNHCR calls application for Youth with Refugees Art Contest. As the old adage has it, an image is worth a thousand words. This art contest is the chance to use creativity for a good cause. Covid-19 is affecting everyone on the planet. The 70.8 million people who have fled their homes to escape conflict or persecution need to be protected from the virus, like everyone else. Candidates can showcase use their talents to help UNHCR share the message that everyone counts in the fight against Covid-19, including refugees.


The creation of the winning candidates will be ANIMATED and shared on our platforms. This is a chance to bring their art to life – whatever their favorite style is – and get it in front of the 8 million followers. Candidates will also receive a special prize from UNHCR and various other goodies.


Under the overall heading of Everyone Counts, you can focus on one or more of these three themes:

  • Everyone should be protected from the virus. Everyone should have access to water, soap, health care, and medicine. Unfortunately, many refugees who have fled the war in their countries are in places with limited access to all of this, which makes them very vulnerable.
  • Everyone should be kind to each other. The virus can affect anyone, so there is no reason to blame anyone for it. We are worried that refugees may become the target of discrimination.
  • Everyone has a role to play in fighting the virus. Health workers. Humanitarian workers. You, by raising awareness and staying at home! Refugees are also leading in the fight against the virus. They help older people. They make soap. They are doctors and nurses joining the front line work.
