The 2018 Our World is Kind photography contest received more than 2000 submissions from 850+ photographers in over 100 countries. There were so many wonderful and inspiring images of kindness, compassion, joy, and love.
That’s why we’re back again for 2019, seeking images from kind and talented photographers from around the world.
Envision Kindness is a non-profit that inspires kindness, compassion, joy, and love through still and video photography. We share the best images to inspire people wherever they are.
Science shows that exposure to images of kindness can help people be kinder, happier, and more optimistic and generous. The more that we share, the more compassionate, empathetic, happy, and healthy our communities can be.
Here’s below a bit of inspiration to help you capture these impactful moments.
• Kind People – We see kindness in people every day. In people we know and those we haven’t met yet. People lending a hand, helping others, sharing a meal, a smile, or paying it forward. And self-kindness.
• Kindness in Nature – There is kindness in animals, in a heart shape leaf, in hikers lending a hand, in protecting the environment, and much more. When we take the time, we can see kindness all around.
• Kindness in the Community – Our communities are filled with kindness! At work, in places of worship, from non-profits, through fundraising efforts, and in public spaces and shops. Showcase your community organization!
You can submit 1 photo per entry and up to 5 submissions per person.
New this year! Capture the work of your favorite non-profit or volunteer organization to be eligible for a new prize celebrating their work. Both you AND your favorite organization may take home a prize!
To submit your photograph, please:
Don’t forget – the description is an important part of your submission! Where it was taken, what is going on in the image, who the people are and your thoughts on what about kindness or compassion it reflects.
