2019 Our World is Kind Photography Contest
Do you believe the world could be a kinder place? It can, through your photography.
The 2018 Our World is Kind Contest had more than 2000 submissions from more than 850 photographers in over 100 countries and viewed over 200,000 times. We received so many terrific and moving images last year that we’re back for 2019, seeking photos from talented and kind photographers around the world.
Science shows that exposure to images of kindness can help people be kinder, happier, and more grateful and optimistic. We inspire kindness in others by gathering and sharing images of kindness, compassion, joy, and love with the world.
With a total of $1,800 in cash prizes — of which $500 each are reserved for the First Place winner, the Nonprofit Honoree winner and the Public Choice winner — the contest is free to enter and has GREAT judges. Will you join the kindness movement? Submit your kind images today and #PictureABetterWorld.
