The finalist entries in the three categories (music, photography and video) are now posted on the www.2012.coop website, where the public can vote for their favourites until 30 September 2012.
The finalists hail from all around the world, including India, the United Kingdom, Spain, the Philippines, Mexico and Chile, among others.
The winners receive USD 3,000 and a trip to the Co-operatives United ICAEXPO and Festival in Manchester that begins on 29 October.
Coop’Art aims to engage young people in the co-operative sector during the 2012 International Year of Co-operatives and identify future leaders of the co-operative movement.
With the theme of “Co-operative enterprises build a better world”, the 2012 International Year of Co-operatives presents an opportunity to raise awareness about the member-owned, democratically controlled, ethics-based co-operative business model and its role in fostering a more sustainable future.
