The 2023 Our World Is Kind global photography contest is now accepting submissions.

We are looking for images showing acts of kindness and caring from all over the world. There are special award categories, too, including for non-profit work!

Science shows that exposure to images of kindness can help people be kinder, happier, more grateful and optimistic. Envision Kindness, a not-for-profit organization, inspires kindness in others by gathering and sharing images of kindness, compassion, joy, and love with the world. We know that it works–people are happier, calmer, more grateful and more generous.

People all over the world need a way to feel happier and more connected to others. To be kinder to others. Your photography could do that.

The contest is free to enter and will award cash prizes of up to $1,000 USD! Our last contest was viewed over 230,000 times and had more than 2000 submissions from 750+ photographers in over 85 countries.
