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, 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.
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 winning entry will receive the Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize and $5,000 USD. In addition, the Global Prize Recipient and the Top 10 Finalists each year will have their photographs exhibited by the United Nations and Fotografiska New York.
The work of the 2021 Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Recipient and Top 10 Finalists will be exhibited at Fotografiska New York starting on December 10, 2021 – UN Human Rights Day.
The 2021 Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Recipient and Top 10 Finalists will also have their work exhibited at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The gallery is situated right outside of the United Nations General Assembly.
The winner will receive $5,000 USD.
Top 10 finalists will be exhibited by the United Nations and Fotografiska New York.
