Create1World Creative Activism and Global Citizenship Competition 2019
Create1World invites students in Y7–13 to enter our fourth annual Create1World competition.
Create1World (founded in 2016 and supported by organisations including UNESCO, Massey University and New Zealand Centre for Global Studies) is a creative activism and global citizenship competition for young people. The NCEA-aligned competition seeks creative entries that imagine new ways to think about global issues such as peace, inequality, celebrating diversity or addressing climate change. It could be a video, song, poem, short story, speech or theatre performance – but it must help us think about ways of working collaboratively for the betterment of all humanity.
Entries open August 1, and are open until 14 October.
The competition categories are: media studies and social studies; speech and drama; creative writing; and music. Entries must relate to the theme of global citizenship and creative expression. The requirements mirror NCEA expectations in terms of length and format. Many students may already have created work this year or last that they can enter for prizes. Entries are welcome in te reo Māori, English or New Zealand Sign Language.
There are cash and other prizes. Additionally, finalists are invited to share their work in a supportive environment and receive expert judging feedback at the annual Create1World conference days. These free days of creative inspiration include local and international panellists answering questions about art for social change, along with performances, workshops and activities. The conferences are in November in Wellington and Auckland, and are open to all secondary students and teachers irrespective of whether they have also entered the competition. See our other current Education Gazette notice for further details of the Conference Days.
