CHANGE THE WORLD…

Photography 4 Humanity is an international initiative that calls on photographers around the world to bring to life the power of human rights through their images. Highlighting the most compelling imagery – illustrating courage, despair, hope, injustice, hate, compassion, human rights failures or victories in ways small and large – the images will serve to inspire people to personally get involved and to take a stand for human rights. 

GLOBAL PRIZE

At the core of the initiative is a global call to action for amateur and professional photographers alike to submit images for an annual competition where the Top 10 finalists each year will have their photographs exhibited at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on December 10, 2019 – Human Rights Day

Submissions are now closed. Stay tuned for an announcement about the Global Prize winner and finalists!

Photos that Make a Difference

Your photos will have a direct, positive impact on human rights issues by inspiring and mobilizing our viewers to take action. One image will be selected monthly for our Call to Action Spotlight page. Call to Action links will encourage and enable our viewers to get directly involved in practical solutions via UN Human Rights and leading NGOs working in the field on relief efforts for those directly impacted by the crisis depicted. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but in this case, it will also inspire thousands of helping hands.
