Photo Competition

Shoot Nations is an annual, global photography competition for young people. Each year focusses on a different global issue and the photographs produced are presented to the United Nations in New York. The theme for this year's competition is CITY LIVING.
Judges chose this theme as more than 50% of the world’s population now live in urban areas. Images which depict everyday life in the world’s cities are expected, from London to Lagos.

Shoot Nations leader George Anang’a says, “This year we want to use the cities theme to build a picture of what urban environments mean to young people whilst focusing on the movement of people and the impact this has on the surrounding environment.”

The competition is free to enter for any photographer under 25, and is split into two categories, 11-16 years and 17-25 years. Entrants can submit up to 3 shots each, along with a brief explanation of why each photo demonstrates ‘City Living’.
