Through this competition, WIPO aims to celebrate and make widely known the creativity of Indigenous and local community youth, as well as raise their awareness on how copyright can be used to protect their creativity expressed in the photographs. The theme of the WIPO Photography Prize is Climate Change and Climate Action: Mother Earth through our Lenses. Participation is meant to encourage Indigenous and local community youth to express themselves on this issue of immense global significance.
WIPO’s Accessible Books Consortium (ABC) has launched a new application that makes accessible digital books available for direct download by individuals who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print disabled.
ABC Global Book Service's business application is provided free of charge and connects participating libraries for the blind, known as authorized entities, to allow the sharing of accessible books.
