UNDP Global Photography Campaign

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the United Nation's global development network. It is an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life.


Under their International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), they are organizing a Global Photography campaign to showcase “examples of people winning the battle against poverty, social exclusion and marginalization.”

“The campaign is intended to counterbalance the frequently shown images of desolation and despair. A photo gallery will to be permanently located at IPC-IG office and open for public visitation. A series of photo exhibitions will also be organized in several cities around the world. Everyone can and is strongly encouraged to participate in this global effort and contribute with a photograph.”
