    Consultant - Photography/Video Services

     

    Additional Category: Democratic Governance and Peacebuilding
    Type of Contract: Individual Contract
    Post Level: National Consultant
    Starting Date (date when the selected candidate is expected to start): 25-Nov-2019
    Duration of Initial Contract: Thirty Five (35) Days
    Expected Duration of Assignment: Thirty Five (35) Days

    Background
    The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development
    Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.

    UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number and diversity of volunteers, including experienced UNV volunteers, throughout the world. UNV embraces volunteerism as universal and inclusive, and recognizes volunteerism in its diversity, as well as the values that sustain it: free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity.

    The communications section of UNV Regional Office for West and Central Africa focuses on clear and effective messaging to increase the visibility and impact of UNV. It documents the status of volunteerism and its contribution to development, raises awareness of volunteerism and its contribution to development among UNV stakeholders, encourages support of volunteerism for development, including observation of IVD, and produces communications and marketing materials that highlight UNV’s support for volunteerism for development and its contribution to the peace and development objectives of UN entity partners.

    Photo/video missions are conducted under the guidance and supervision of the Communications associate responsible for Visual Assets at UNV.

    Scope of Work, Expected Outputs and Contractual Arrangements

    Scope of Work:

    • UNV Regional Office for West and Central Africa, based in Dakar (Senegal) requires a photographer to cover UNV activities in NIGERIA, in support of UNV advocacy and outreach activities.

    Justification
    This mission will be solely focused on capturing the innovative work of UNV Nigeria since its established presence over a year ago. A first photo mission was held last year which showcased the activities of “Volunteer Action Count Campaign” (phase 1) in the North East. The phase 2 was implemented earlier this year. ?UNV has deepened its effort through her increased partnership, increased number of volunteers and expanded activities beyond the North east hence the need to capture the efforts and results of UN volunteers in their various assignments. Currently, UNV is starting a “Street to School” campaign in the North East which is reflected as the Phase 3 of the Volunteer Action Count Campaign. This is in partnership with UNDP, Community Leaders, School Heads and community members. We will also capture what volunteers are doing in other agencies especially those on the field such as Spotlight Initiative, Peace Project e.t.c.

    For 2019 Photo mission, one of the main objectives is to showcase the results we have achieved across board with our partners and also to reveal the impact and value of engaging directly with communities through volunteerism
    We now have an expanded partnership base and we will be working with 5 UN partners (RCO, UNDP, UNHCR, UNWOMEN, FAO). 10 volunteers (3 internationals and 7 nationals) working on various projects will be reached and interviewed on their specific roles and how this is contributing to their agency’s mandate, the SDGs as well as their career development

    We note that these mission dates are prorated and not expected to be counted for each day of the month
    This is as a result of the context, coverage, target interviewees (like the RC and Heads of Agencies), it becomes necessary to have ample time so that targeted partners are involved and reached appropriately
