Application Opens for Best 2024 Humanity Global Climate Justice Photography


Photography 4 Humanity (P4H), a global photo contest that calls on photographers to bring to life the power of human rights through their images, is inviting entries from photographers from all over the world for the 2024 Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Competition.

The 2024 edition promotes climate justice and applicants are encouraged to submit entries that bring to life the fight for climate justice by highlighting the most compelling imagery which illustrate courage, despair, hope, injustice, compassion, human rights failures or victories in small and large ways as well as inspire people to personally get involved and to take a stand for human rights.
