Our World is Kind
Do you believe the world could be a kinder place? It can, through your photography. Science shows that exposure to images of kindness can help people be kinder and more generous. These images can also make people happier, more grateful, and more optimistic. And kind, happy, grateful, and optimistic people are healthier, too!
That’s what this contest is all about. We hope to inspire kindness by gathering and sharing still and video photography with the world. The more positive content we share, the more compassionate, empathetic, happy, and healthy our communities can be.
The 2017 Our World is Kind Contest garnered more than 1500 submissions from 650+ photographers in over 80 countries. We received so many terrific and moving images last year that we’re back for 2018, seeking photos from talented and kind photographers around the world.
Will you join the kindness movement? Submit your kind images today and #PictureABetterWorld.
