Photography 4Humanity (United States)

Details below as quoted from this link.

Photography 4 Humanity is an international initiative created by Right Here, Right Now 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 serve to inspire people to personally get involved and to take a stand for human rights.

Right Here, Right Now and Photography 4 Humanity called upon photographers around the world to capture images of people being affected by climate change starting in 2022. The climate justice exhibit was used to open the 2022 Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Summit in Boulder on December 1st. The exhibit then moved to the United Nations on December 10th, and was used to promote UN Human Rights Day and the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In 2023, the exhibit was promoted globally on by the United Nations.

The 2024 Global Contest promotes climate justice. We believe climate change is a human rights issue, so we are looking for images that show people impacted by the escalating climate crisis. They include climate refuges, the very young, the very old, the disabled and injured, the poor, indigenous and island people, and women. Images of climate champions advocating for change, and those helping to mitigate and reverse climate change are welcome.
