In collaboration with universities, other institutions, cooperation partners, and media, the "agi ArbeitsGruppe International" and the non-profit organisation "Glückliche Familie e.V." are the initiators of this annual contest.
The contest is intended to raise awareness of the forms of violence practised and consumed, and strengthen opposition to violence, making violence prevention a central public issue.
Widely used in many different ways, the key media (photography, films, music, drawings, advertising, journalism) – drawing on contextual structure, expression and design, creativity and an emotional soundtrack – can make an important contribution to realising these objectives.
For this reason we welcome subjective-artistic positions as well as a documentary style in approaching the key topic or highly varied interpretive forms.
We assume that artistic talent has an obligation not only to private interests but should also support charitable causes, and invite you to commit your talent to the contest and support the protection of children and young people against violent influences.
Valuable prizes and media presence are an incentive to excel.
