Office for Personal Data Protection
on occasion of the Data Protection Day of 28 January 2017
11th edition of competition for children and youth
“My privacy! Don´t look, don´t poke about!“
We offer a challenge for those
courageous of you who like drawing
and painting, or work with graphic software. Have a think over
privacy, consider who or what could be helpful to protect it. Let your
imagination run riot, your guardian can be an animal, an object, but also a
completely fanciful being. To cut it short, we invite you to create a data privacy mascot.
Those who prefer thinking with
ballpoint pen in hand, over keyboard, or holding a camcorder, will not have
easier task. We encourage you to draft an essay, story, screenplay, or to record
a video trying to explain where you see the difference between secrecy and privacy. Does privacy
always mean secrecy? Is one of these aspects more important? How would you
explain the differences, if any, to for instance younger children?
To join the competition are
also invited, like in the previous years, whole classes, after-school clubs, libraries,
leisure-time centers, and other youth
groups. If you decide for team work and invent some accompanying activities
please let us know not only the result but give us a taste of the atmosphere
during your creation. We will publicly share your information and photographic
or video documentation on our website. Authors of the contributions selected by
the jury as the best ones, can look forward to a special reward.
You may take part within two age groups of 7 – 13 years and 14 – 18 years
Participants under 18 years of
age are invited to send their contributions (please indicate your name, address
