We are proud to announce that the winner of the 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report art contest is Khalid Mohamed Hammad Elkhateem, 23, from Sudan, whose entry “In the middle of nowhere” is shown here.
We asked young people around the world to help us visualize the themes of our upcoming report on youth, skills and work through their art. We received many submissions – making it hard for the jury to pick their favourites.
Khalid “Shatta”, as the winner is known as an artist, will receive a trip to Paris to participate in an event publicizing the artwork and meet with the EFA Global Monitoring Report team. The artworks will be displayed in an online gallery around the time of the launch of the 2012 EFA Global Monitoring Report, and some will be used for the 2012 Report. In the meantime, the winner and the honorary mentions are displayed on our website.
