The International Play Association has created the IPA Special Award on the Right to Play in Times of Crisis so that people from around the world may share ideas on how to best help all children during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, more than ever, it is critical to ensure that adults understand the important role that play holds during times of crisis. It is also important to share the surging creative solutions growing worldwide that are intended to help children survive, cope and even thrive. This Special Award will help find and spread great ideas around the world.
DEADLINE: 10 October 2020
Submissions will be judged by an independent jury and shortlisted candidates will be invited to present their project in a special webinar and in a special issue of PlayRights Magazine.
Winners will be announced on 20 November 2020 – International Children’s Day.
