The competition is targeted at students aged between 13-18 years old who are invited to demonstrate an awareness and an understanding of conflict in the world today through the submission of either a written article or an original image.

This is a chance for students to engage with an issue that addresses equality, justice, inclusion and also draws on faith and personal experience.

Two separate competitions will be judged, one for students in Ireland and one for students in Britain.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the winning entrants and the first prize is an impressive €300! High-profile judges from the world of journalism have been secured and winning entries will be published in the Columbans’ Far East magazine, Vocation For Justice newsletter and published in other Catholic media.

Winning material will be published on Columban websites in Ireland and Britain, shared on Columban social media and in the past, have also be used in marketing materials such as Appeal Letters and have featured in the Columban calendar too. For more information see:
