The Children’s Eyes On Earth International Youth Photography Contest and International Youth Photo Festival aim to raise awareness of social and environmental issues through the eyes of young people and their photographs.
The global enterprise was initiated by Leyla Aliyeva, founder of the non-governmental organisation IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action) and REZA, renowned photographer and founder of the non-governmental organisation AINA World.
The Contest launched in the summer of 2012 and drew over 4,000 entries from children in over 90 countries around the world, who submitted images on the themes "I Love Nature" and "I Fear Pollution".
This May, the International Youth Photo Festival was held in Baku, Azerbaijan, opening with an exhibition and award ceremony. The first of its size and kind, the Festival showcased the best 100 images from the Contest, including the six winning entries, and brought together entrants from as far as Nepal, Indonesia and Canada, who participated in a photography workshop with Reza at the UNESCO World Heritage site, Gobustan.
