If you don’t already know about the OneMinutesJr. project, this week’s Thursday video is designed to introduce you. Launched in 2002, this international, arts-based initiative gives young people aged 12 to 20 – especially those from underprivileged or marginalized communities – an opportunity to share their ideas, dreams, anxieties and viewpoints with the world.
And also a chance to WIN!
This one, by 17-year-old Carlon Knight from Antigua, took the prize in best (self) portrait.
The other winners came from Barbados and Tajikistan.
