City Red Cross of Skopje, supported by the association of graphic designers „Plakart“ and City of Skopje as a party of the project “Red Cross school clubs for education and prevention” supported by City of Skopje, announce

International prize-winning competition on the topic:

SMILE 🙂 „Everywhere 4 everyone“

 

On World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day and throughout 2018, we will celebrate the strength and reach of our global network, and the contribution of our staff and around 14 million volunteers through the theme “Everywhere for everyone”.

This year we aim to broaden the public’s understanding of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement by highlighting the diversity of our work and the universality of our approach. We’ll be using a simple call to action to share one of the most universal symbols – a smile. A smile is a universal sign of happiness, comfort, satisfaction. For a volunteer, it means a job well done. For someone affected by crisis, it can mean someone is ready and willing to help. We want to harness the power of this symbol to celebrate the dedication and impact of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, and their volunteers and staff. Our aim is to highlight how the Movement is addressing humanitarian challenges through original, innovative and unusual approaches. Focusing on community-led action and impact, we will share the positive stories of change and hope with the call to action “share what makes you smile”.

For purpose of promotion of the work of the Red Cross and promotion of positive changes in the community, the City Red Cross of Skopje, supported by the association of graphic designers „Plakart“ and City of Skopje announces prize-winning competition  on the topic: SMILE 🙂 „Everywhere 4 everyone“
