Radio broadcasters under 21 years of age around the world can enter the 2006 UNICEF/OneWorld Radio competition, which will honor broadcasts on HIV and AIDS and children. Submission deadline: October 1.

The competition is part of OneWorld Radio and UNICEF?s ongoing HIV and AIDS awareness campaign, titled ?Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS.? The winners will be announced in conjunction with the International Children?s Day of Broadcasting in December.

Entries can be submitted in two categories in any language: features of up to six minutes in length or public service announcements of up to one minute. They should focus on how HIV and AIDS affect children, from youth-oriented prevention efforts to the scope of the epidemic when it comes to children.

There will be one winner and two runners-up in each category. The winning entries will be featured on the One World Web site and podcasted from the UNICEF Web site; the winners will receive radio production equipment worth about US$500. All entries will be published on the One World site.
