Photographers are invited to submit their unique points of view about the world they
want for future generations for a chance to be featured in a series of exhibitions
around the world.
The call for submissions in the Agora app is open until 24 July, with the contest’s 75
finalists to be revealed on 14 October.
As global challenges multiply and grow in scope and complexity, so does the need for us to work together in a spirit of solidarity. In addition to dealing with these growing challenges, the United Nations continues to work to create a world where everyone can thrive in peace, dignity and equality, on a healthy planet. We welcome Agora’s initiative that promotes these universal values by inviting people from around the world to share images of the future they envision.
Maher Nasser, Director of the Outreach Division of the United Nations Department of Global Communications
We are honored to do our part to support the UN75 efforts with our own citizen participation movement where anyone can upload images representing their ideal future. The result being #TheWorldWeWant: a visual manifesto about our hopes for the future, which will be sent to the World’s Leaders and to the International Community.
Octavi Royo, Agora’s CEO and Co-founder
Now more than ever, the many voices of ‘we the peoples’ are needed to fortify human solidarity and overcome the unprecedented global challenges we face. I am grateful that Agora is supporting the 75th anniversary of the United Nations by inviting people from diverse countries and from all walks of life to share their vision of the future in this unique photo competition.
