The purpose of the UN4U photo contest is to raise awareness regarding the core UN values of: Freedom, such as freedom from want and freedom from fear; Dignity; Solidarity; Justice; Protection; Human Rights; Security; Empowerment; Sustainability; Progress; Equality; and Peace.
The various agencies, commissions, funds and programmes of the UN throughout the Asia-Pacific region are holding a photo contest for all persons residing in eligible countries.
The contest is a chance for you to use your creativity to show UN values at work in your neighborhood, city, country or the Asia-Pacific region. The photos are totally up to you, just tell which UN values they represent and write a short description about how the photo captures that value and you could be entered to win great prizes from contest sponsor Nikon. There’s also a viewer’s choice prize that will be awarded to the picture with the most likes on the UN4U Facebook page.
How To Enter
Starting August 27, 2012 the photo contest will officially start. Return to this page between August 27, 2012 and September 21, 2012 and you will find a submission form where you can enter your information and submit your photos for the contest.
What We Need From You
For each photo you submit we will need a brief caption describing how it relates to one of the UN values, your title for the photo, the date the photo was taken (we will only accept photos taken within the last year) and the location that the photo was taken.
In addition to your photo information we will need your contact information including mailing address, daytime phone number and e-mail address.
What Happens Next
Once you have submitted your photos to our database you will not be able to edit your submission, so please make sure that your information is correct when filling out the form. After the contest is closed our judges will consider the entries and choose one grand prize winner and two runners up. Photos will be put on Facebook where the general public can vote on their favorite and the winner will receive the viewers’ choice prize. Winners of the contest and the Facebook “Viewers’ Choice” will be contacted directly regarding the redemption of their prizes.
