UNICEF's Youth Mediathon is an online skills building program that gives you the opportunity to improve your abilities as content creator and work with other youth to develop multimedia projects about the issues affecting young people today.

This year, our classes are led by top professionals in top creative firms like GIPHY, and inspiring creators like Atticus and IN-Q. A group of selected participants won a chance apply the learnings from the program to create and publish their own content with UNICEF. Their projects will be published here soon!
