Deadline: 24 January 2016
In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the first UN General Assembly resolution, which established the goal of eliminating nuclear weapons and all weapons of mass destruction, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs has issued call for entries for the UN Poster for Peace Contest.
The contest aims to raise awareness of the need for nuclear disarmament and to inspire citizens across the globe to add their voices, and use their artistic talents, to promote a world free of nuclear weapons.
Since its establishment, the United Nations has been seeking to eliminate all weapons of mass destruction, especially the deadliest and most indiscriminate – nuclear weapons. Nearly 70 years ago, the UN General Assembly’s first resolution, adopted on 24 January 1946, established the goal of eliminating all nuclear weapons and other weapons “adaptable to mass destruction”.
