Did you know that research has shown how viewing compassionate, kind, and peaceful images can affect our wellbeing and happiness? That’s right; even a few moments a day can have huge effects. Now, photographers from across the planet share their joy in the Kindness Photography contest.
Their Third Year
Envision Kindness is a non-profit organization that aims to spread positivity throughout the media. 2019 marked the third year that they have run their The World Is Kind contest that allows any budding photographers to wow the judges – as long as the snap embodies kindness.
The Kindness Photography contest received more than a whopping 1,800 submissions from all corners of the Earth. To top it off, these pictures were all taken by 750 photographers that live in more than 85 countries. The team then chose their top 20 photos while the public got to vote on theirs.
The founder of Envision Kindness, David Fryburg, knows that the world is filled with negative images and stories. He wanted to create a way to show people that there is still kindness in the world, and so, the Kindness Photography contest was born. Now, David hopes the images will help people to share the love with others.
Although it might feel as though the world is filled with doom and gloom, the likes of projects such as the Kindness Photography contest help to show there is still plenty of love to go around. Sometimes, we just need to look at things from a new perspective.
