Photographers for Social Change
Documenting humanity to make a difference
We connect emerging photographers, aspiring photojournalist and visual storytellers from every city of the world to document humanity and make a difference by raising awareness about global issues and empowering NGOs.
Participants share one photo per hour during twenty four hours. On one single day we get to see the world from a different point of view, humanity documented by local photographers. Through the 24HourProject’s mission, values and global exhibitions, the project reaches millions of individuals annually showcasing the human connection of images and real live stories.
After the event we will have travel exhibitions where you get a chance to be included and get international exposure.
The 24HourProject starts on Saturday, July 24th 2021. This means photographers will start documenting their city at 00:00 hours of Saturday until 23:59 hours of that same Saturday in the photographer’s city.
