    For the World AIDS Day, 1st December, AVERT are challenging you to come up with a powerful and creative infographic to help convey a message about HIV prevention.

    We want you to decide what you believe the most important message, information and/or statistics are, to help inform people your age about their rights and sexual health, and to ultimately protect themselves against HIV.

    Examples of some topics:

    • Understanding your right to negotiate condom use
    • Presenting statistics you believe your peers need to know about
    • How stigma can affect HIV prevention

    Infographics are graphic/visual interpretations of information, data and knowledge, presented in a manner that is both innovative and visually stimulating. Infographics are an important tool for presenting complex information in a quick and easily understandable way.

    Your entry can contain digital art, graphs, charts, photographs, illustrations, drawings, and paintings. Any form of media is allowed. As long as it is contained within one image, and all of the work is your own. The infographic should be in JPG format, with no less than 918 x 258 pixels and a resolution of 72ppi.

    The judging will start as soon as the competition closes. Ten applicants will be short-listed, with one winner and three runners-up.

    There is no entry fee.

    AVERT is an international HIV and AIDS charity, based in the UK, working to avert HIV and AIDS worldwide, through education, prevention, care and support.
