The “Our candidate, their fight” call for applications is an opportunity for groups of young people supervised by an adult to highlight the work of a public figure or an organisation and their recent fight for freedom.

Groups must fill out a form which encourages reasoned work and documentary research, prompting participants to question their candidate’s chosen fight and its context. This call for applications is also an opportunity to promote fights for freedom which have received little media coverage. 

If they so wish, in addition to this form, youth participants are invited to produce short videos presenting their candidate and to create artistic creative work on the theme of freedom or their chosen fight. This work may be used to promote the finalist candidates for the digital voting campaign and may be used at the award ceremony and on social networks.

The groups which have sent the most relevant and thorough “Our candidate, their fight” applications will also be invited to the award ceremony in June 2019 which will be attended by the winner.
