24 October 2011 marks the 66th birthday of the United Nations. On this occasion, the United Nations in Serbia in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and the UN Alliance of Civilizations, announces : The 2011 UN Day photo contest Theme: Alliance of Civilizations and Serbia - "Embracing Civilizations''.

The United Nations in Serbia will celebrate its 66th birthday on 24 October 2011. The anniversary of the entry into force of the United Nations Charter on 24 October 1945 has been celebrated as the United Nations Day since 1948. It has traditionally been marked and celebrated throughout the world. Since 1971, the Member States celebrate this date as international day. The celebration is dedicated to the UN Alliance of Civilizations that celebrates diversity and partnerships. The wealth of Serbian society’s multi-cultural/ethnic/religious diversity and heritage constitutes a great foundation for building a prosperous future. The uniqueness of multicultural wealth is a necessary precondition for better cooperation with other countries in the region and affirmation of concept ‘’living together’’ as European citizens.

The United Nations Country Team in Serbia and the Government of Serbia, in partnership with national and international partners, will organize a series of events which may include: culture and arts, a film festival, literature and poetry, theater, dance, installations and exhibitions, discussions and lectures on culture and policy, security and identity, Roma culture and art, inter-religious dialogue and other, all of which celebrate the wealth of Serbian society and its neighbours. Because few media are more direct, more powerful and more intimate than photographs, the UN in Serbia is organizing a photo contest, in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and the UN Alliance of Civilizations to highlight the importance of Serbian society’s multi-cultural/ethnic/religious diversity and heritage.
