Humanity Photo Awards 2011


Aiming to record the world's folklore cultures, the Humanity Photo Awards (HPA) 2011, organised by the China Folklore Photographic Association (CFPA) and UNESCO, invites worldwide participation in this contest.

Entries are accepted until 15 April 2011.

HPA, launched in 1998 by CFPA, is a biennial photography contest which calls upon worldwide photographers, professional or amateur, to record, spread and share the diverse cultures among mankind. HPA has been greatly supported by UNESCO since the year 2000.

So far, HPA has collected over 130,000 folklore photos from 141 countries taken by photographers from 108 countries. Common humanity in diversity is what the contest is trying to express.
