The Jury

The UNESCO World Heritage Centre coordinated the selection of the three winners through two independent juries composed of World Heritage and Education specialists who evaluated the storyboards. The following criteria  were used during the selection process:

  • The quality and legibility of the drawing,
  • The originality of the story and the role of Patrimonito,
  • The author's knowledge of the site,
  • The relevance and significance of the problem or challenge faced by the site,
  • The realism and viability of the chosen solution(s).

Competition

In March 2012, the Cultural Heritage Administration of the Republic of Korea (CHA) and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre (WHC)  launched the Patrimonito National Storyboard Competition, Republic of Korea . Of the 143 student submissions, 10 of the storyboards were selected by the Korean Cultural Heritage Administration and were then sent to the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, where 3 winners were selected in a second round.

In June 2012, the World Heritage Education Center for Youth (Beijing, China) and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre (WHC) launched the Patrimonito National Storyboard Competition, China.  Of the 103 student submissions, 15 of the storyboards were selected by the Chinese World Heritage Education Center for Youth of Beijing and sent to the UNESCO World Heritage Centre.

The 1 st place winning storyboard of each competition will be professionally transformed into an animated film and included in the  Patrimonito’s World Heritage Cartoon Series  as a new episode. Both episodes will be shown during the closing ceremony of the 40th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention in November 2012.

Patrimonito Storyboard Competition

In 2002 a cartoon series entitled Patrimonito's World Heritage Adventures was launched where Patrimonito introduces World Heritage sites, the threats they are facing and proposes solutions to preserve them. 

Storyboards were chosen following a competition among secondary school pupils to raise their awareness of the importance of World Heritage and their role in preserving it. The competition was organized by UNESCO on the occasion of the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the World Heritage Convention in 2002. The award-wining storyboards are professionally animated and produced in CD-ROM format for global diffusion to schools and at World Heritage Youth events.

The cartoon films are based on storyboards made ‘by young people for young people' and selected during a Patrimonito Storyboard Competition. They are proving to be useful teaching support materials. They are becoming popular at events held by UNESCO.
