Humankind photo contest

Humankind photo contest

See your photo in the 2015 Mercy Corps calendar and win a portfolio review from Getty Images

At Mercy Corps we believe that people have more in common than not.

Even at this time of unprecedented global emergencies, one fact remains the same: Around the world and across cultures, we all want to live in peace and community, to celebrate and protect our families, and to have opportunity and ownership in the lives we create.

In our work to help people overcome poverty and conflict, we've seen the power of photography shine a light on our shared desires. Photos move us beyond borders to speak the same language: one of love, strength and courage.

Now, we want to see how you view our shared humanity. Is it a moment of connection? A gesture of kindness? A look of understanding? Share a photo you’ve taken that captures what unites us and above all else, gives you hope for our global future as humankind.

Submissions are now closed, but return on Tuesday, September 2 to see the three finalists and vote for your favorite to appear in the 2015 Mercy Corps calendar.
