ICTY Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) is pleased to announce the winners of the art competition organised for university students in the countries of the former Yugoslavia:
Amanda Bešić, International University of Sarajevo – First Place
Muhammet Suicmez, International University of Sarajevo – Second Place
Maja Skenderović, Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts, and
Muhamed Begić, Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts - Third Place (shared)
The competition – organized in cooperation with the ICTY Outreach program - took place as part of the OTP’s development of a book titled “Prosecuting Conflict-Related Sexual Violence at the ICTY,” which will be published in the first half of 2016. Entrants were asked to provide visual interpretations and representations of the concepts of justice and accountability in the context of wartime sexual violence.
The panel evaluating the art submissions received from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia was impressed by their variety and overall quality. A selection of these submissions, including the winning entries, will be exhibited at the book launch in 2016.
