HART Prize for Human Rights

Are you interested in human rights? Would you like to win a trip to a 'frozen-conflict' area?

Would you like to see your work published in a newsletter with international readership? 

For the fourth year, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) is running the HART Prize for Human Rights. The Prize aims to engage young people (aged 12-25) with our partners around the world. These groups have little presence in the international media and the humanitarian situations they face are largely unknown and unreported. Many live behind closed borders, meaning it is difficult for aid and support to get in and for information to get out. 

HART works with marginalised communities who are deeply affected by conflict, poverty and human rights abuses and focuses on groups and issues which are underrepresented in the international media and neglected by the international community. By running a twin-track programme of advocacy and targeted aid, HART helps marginalised communities to address issues which they themselves consider most important. 

We are calling for essays and artwork which focus on the political and humanitarian situations faced by our partners around the world, and which raise awareness of human rights violations.

This year's grand prize will be a trip with HART to visit its partners in Nagorno-Karabakh (an Armenian landlocked enclave in Azerbaijan)!

For more information please do not hesitate to contact us or visit our webpage about the competition here. A short two-page brief explaining the Prize for Human Rights can be found here.
