The World Toilet Day is celebrated on 19 November and is about taking action to ensure that everyone has a safe toilet by 2030. As part of this year’s celebration, WSSCC is organizing a photo contest for members called the “World Toilet Day Champion challenge”. The goal is to showcase the diverse and meaningful work that our members are doing within their communities by engaging and rallying them to participate and raise awareness on sanitation-related issues.
To participate, take a photograph that shows an activity you are doing to mobilize your community on sanitation and proper use of toilets. The photo must also capture the theme of this year’s World Toilet Day, “When nature calls”. Additionally, please include a description of the activity that is taking place in the photograph.
The photo should be in high-resolution, must be recent (taken this year) and should not have been used or won in another photo contest. Send the picture as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner of the challenge will be awarded a high-resolution digital camera. Additionally, the winning photo will be featured in the Executive Director’s presentation on World Toilet Day at the United Nations Palais des Nations in Geneva.
Participants are encouraged to send their photos by midnight on Wednesday, 14th November 2018 CET (Central European Time). Any submissions sent in after the challenge deadline will not be considered.
For more information on the photo contest, check out the guidelines and rules.
