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; ; 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.
