A new national prize which gives young people a platform to investigate the defining social issues of our time.

Today’s defining social issues are grand in scale and wickedly complex. They defy simple understanding, and simple solutions often do more harm than good.

The Koreo prize asks young people to approach social issues in a way that embraces their complexity, seeking out opposing points of view, understanding that there is rarely one right solution to complex issues.

We’re asking entrants to choose one of 6 defining social issues, and bring that issue to life through a story or series of stories.
Submissions will be judged by a panel of high profile experts from across the public, private and non-profit sectors.

Prizes will include £5,000 cash, paid work placements, free learning opportunities, tickets to global conferences, and mentoring opportunities.
