Say It in Photos

Children and young people of the Cayman Islands enjoy many rights.

Young people ages eight to 17 years are encouraged to take photos showing human rights, and enter them for the Human Rights Day celebrations in early December.

One entry per person is allowed in the CI - See You competition. The photos must be original images taken in the Cayman Islands by the young person. Entries will be judged in three age groups: eight to 11 years, 12 to 14 years, and 15 to 17 years.

The photos will be judged on creativity, and how well they show the messages of human rights, freedom and social responsibility. All children's human rights include their right to freedom, family, religion, education, nutrition and health.

There will be an overall best photo winner, as well as two honourable mentions in each age group. Prizes will be awarded on Friday, 10 December at the Human Rights Music and Arts Show at Camana Bay.

Each overall best photo winner will receive a $50 gift certificate, and each honourable mention will receive a $25 gift certificate. The photographs will also be published in local media and displayed at locations throughout Cayman, as well as posted on the Human Rights Commission website.

The deadline for photo submissions is Friday, 3 December. Winners will be notified on Wednesday, 8 December. Each submission must include the photographer's name, age, e-mail address and phone number, as well as the photo title, and a description of the subject area (such as human rights, freedoms or responsibilities). The digital photographs should be between 2MB and 3MB in size.

Photos can be submitted in three ways:

  • e-mail them to debbie.bodden@gov.ky;
  • mail them to the Human Rights Commission, c/o Commissions Secretariat, P.O. Box 391, Grand Cayman KY1-1106; or
  • deliver them to the Human Rights Commission, c/o Commissions Secretariat, Smith Road Centre, 2nd Floor, George Town, Grand Cayman.
