Envision Kindness 2018 Photo Contest now is calling for entries and like every yaer themed "Our World is Kind", invites all photographers around the world to participate.
Envision Kindness is a nonprofit (charity) organization based in Connecticut, USA, that promotes kindness, compassion and empathy through sharing of images and stories of kindness.The more positive content they share, the more compassionate, empathetic and connected their communities can be and that is why they need you. Share your pictures of kindness with them—and the world—to inspire and uplift others.
Do you believe the world can be a kinder and happier place? Science shows that exposure to images of kindness can help people be kinder and more generous. These images can also make people happier, more grateful, and more optimistic. And kind, happy, grateful, and optimistic people are healthier, too!
Organizer are seeking photos from talented photographers around the world that can inspire kindness. The objective for this contest is to capture as many photographic perspectives and stories about kindness, compassion, and empathy, and then share them with as many people as possible. Your photographic eye and humanity are critical to this. That is, can you capture kindness in its many forms?
The question is "What is a kind image?". Below there is a bit of inspiration to help you capture these impactful moments.
• KIND PEOPLE - We see kindness in people everyday – in people we know and those we haven’t met yet. People lending a hand, helping others, sharing a meal, a smile and paying it forward.
• KINDNESS IN NATURE - There is kindness in animals, in the heart shape leaf, hikers lending a hand, giving shelter from the natural elements and more. When we take the time, we can see kindness all around.
• KINDNESS IN THE COMMUNITY - Our communities are filled with kindness! At work, in churches, non-profits, fundraising efforts, in our public spaces and shops. Showcase the kindness that ties us all together.
