UNDP, the UN's Development Program is organizing "Picture This", a photo contest, in partnership with Olympus Corporation, The Agence France-Presse (AFP) Foundation, and the UN’s Department of Information. "Picture This" wants to highlight the importance of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the work that is already being done to achieve them.
Any amateur or professional photographer can submit up to three pictures with captions until July 16 via Picture This website. Your pictures need to focus on one of the MDGs.
About 400 pictures have been submitted to date. Take your time to browse through them. Some are truly great, even though sometimes the caption and title does not say much.
