Right to Play Awards


The International Play Association (IPA) Right to Play Award Programme was created to recognise and celebrate projects that utilise innovative and practical ways to implement Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

Appropriate projects include activity programmes, public awareness campaigns, implemented national or local legislation, design of spaces, and design of play items.

Award winners will be announced at the 20th Triennial IPA World Conference hosted in Calgary, Canada in September 2017 and featured on the IPA website.

Closing date for submissions: 30 June 2017
