      Panos London | Humanising Development global photography campaign


      Panos London has partnered with the United Nations Development Programme
      to promote the Humanising Development global photography campaign.

      Running from the 1st June to 1st October the campaign wants to challenge
      stereotyped views of development, giving new perspectives and showing
      examples of people winning the battle against poverty, social exclusion
      and marginalisation.

      The campaign encourages everyone to participate, including professional
      photographers, by contributing a photo.

      There will be a number of key outcomes to the campaign with photography
      exhibitions held in several cities around the world, as well as a
      permanent photo gallery at the International Policy Centre for Inclusive
      Growth office. In addition a photography database will be created and
      shared with campaign partners as well as departments and agencies across
      the UN.

      To take part, contribute photos, and help with the campaign please visit
      the website: http://www.ipc-undp.org/photo
