On the occasion of the 20th World Day against the Death Penalty, young people (14-25 years old) from all over the world are invited to participate in the 6th edition of the "Draw me abolition" competition to create a poster against the death penalty.

The 50 best posters selected by an international jury will be exhibited in the participating countries and at the next Congresses against the death penalty organised by ECPM. A trilingual exhibition catalogue will also be published to highlight the creativity and commitment of the young people. Registration for the competition is free of charge and, subject to availability of places, may entitle the young people to a presentation by ECPM or one of its partners to raise their awareness of human rights and the abolition of the death penalty.

The competition is organised by ECPM and the International Network for Abolition Education (RIEA), an informal group of associations (Algerian, German, Cameroonian, Congolese, French, Italian, Lebanese, Moroccan, Mauritanian, Taiwanese, Tanzanian, Tunisian) working to educate young people on the abolition of the death penalty by promoting the exchange of good practices and the development of collaborative educational tools at the international level.
