75 photos for 75 years of the UN, with Agora photographers at centre stage.
“Now more than ever, the many voices of ‘We the Peoples’ are needed to fortify human solidarity and overcome the unprecedented global challenges we face. I am grateful that Agora is supporting the 75th anniversary of the United Nations by inviting people from diverse countries and from all walks of life to share their vision of the future in this unique photo competition.”– Fabrizio Hochschild, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for the United Nations 75th Anniversary.
This year, to commemorate the United Nations 75th anniversary, UN Secretary-General António Guterres launched a global conversation (UN75: Shaping our Future Together) inviting everyone, everywhere to participate. Agora, in Official Support of this global initiative, launched the photo contest #TheWorldWeWant to offer a creative and visual way for people to share their vision of the future and the world they want for themselves and generations to come.
The result is a one of a kind virtual exhibit of the 75 winning images selected from more than 50,000 images from over 130 countries.
