70 submissions for IHS picture competition

The Education and Employment Research Group is delighted with the numerous and creative submissions received for its picture competition on the subject of social inequality.


How are young people today affected by inequality in their everyday lives and in society
and what was the situation like 60 years ago, at the beginning of the 1960s?

This question was the focus of the picture competition organized by the Education and Employment Research Group to mark the 60th anniversary of the IHS. Young people were invited to discuss social inequality then and now and to depict the results of their reflections in pictures.

70 teams responded to our call. The submissions not only cover a wide range of topics and dimensions of inequality. They also encompass a wide range of creative forms of expression - from photography, painting and drawing to images generated using artificial intelligence. Thank you very much for taking part! 

What happens next? 

Our jury will select three winning teams from all submissions and reward them with cash prizes of €500 each. It is not the perfect implementation that counts, but the good idea. The winners will be notified mid-November and invited to an event with an award ceremony, which will take place on December 13 from 17:00 to 19:00 at the Institute for Advanced Studies. 

Furthermore, all submissions will be published in December in the form of a virtual exhibition via Instagram. The results are impressive - stay tuned!
