Results of the 3rd year (2009)
We are highly pleased that the third year of a competition for children and young people up to 18 years of age “My privacy! Don’t look, don’t poke about!” became, concerning the amount of received entries, record-breaking. We obtained 337 competition works (essays, poems, drawings, collages, photos, a statue and even one movie contribution) in total.
In fact, it wasn´t easy to choose the only winner in each section, but the jury of experts succeeded in the end:

the third year of a competition for children and young people up to 18 years of age
„My privacy! Don’t look, don’t poke about!“
On the occasion of “Personal Data Protection Day” on 28 January 2009, we have some questions for you:
What does the term “privacy” mean to you? Is it important for you? Tell us why it is or isn’t. Should we value our privacy? What privacy concerns do you have? What experiences do you have with respect for privacy? What problems do you see with respect for your and others’ privacy? What should be done to improve privacy protection?
Your imagination knows no bounds! So why not express your thoughts on these questions in writing, in a picture or photograph or you can simply send in your comments on passages from a book that’s caught your interest because it deals with privacy issues.
Please send us your entries (stating your name, address and age) by 30 April 2009

There are two competition categories (children up to 12 and from 13 to 18) and these categories are divided into a literary section and an art section (which includes pictures and also photographs, collages and sculptures). The winners in each category and section will be selected by a jury of experts and will be invited to the International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Zlín at the start of June (children under 15 will be accompanied by their parents), where they will be handed their prizes at a presentation ceremony.
One of the competition’s partners is the International Film Festival for Children and Youth (www.zlinfest.cz). True to tradition, the festival will arrange a special train, in which the competition entries from the past two years of the competition will be put on display.
Information about the competition will be updated in the section “Pro mládež” (“For young people”) on the Office’s web site www.uoou.cz.
Submitted entries will not be returned and may be used for the Office’s publication purposes. Please send us a categorical statement if you do not agree with the publication of your entry.
So, get writing, painting, reading and taking photos :o). We’re looking forward to receiving your creations!
