Competition for best coverage of inclusion of people with disabilities announced in Belarus

The results of Belarusian Paralympians once again prove that there is nothing impossible for people with disabilities. A creative competition for the best coverage of inclusion of people with disabilities has been announced in Belarus on March 20, 2018.

It is a mutual project of the Information Ministry and the UN Representation Office in Belarus. Journalists, bloggers and photographers can participate. The aim of the project is to show the divers life of people with disabilities, and to open them as personalities – in family, at work and in the society.

Sanaka Samarasinha, coordinator of the UN system in the Republic of Belarus:
During the past couple of years, we focused our attention on breaking stereotypes about people with disabilities. We are trying to eliminate the barriers – social, economic barriers, which are in the way of disabled people and do not allow them to live a worthy life and realize their potential.

The jury of the competition will determine winners in three nominations: “Best journalist story”, “Best photo story” and “Best video story”.
