Entries are invited for the UN Habitat Photo Competition 2022. The The UN-Habitat’s Flagship Programme 1 invites professional and amateur photographers worldwide to participate in a photo contest on the topic “Inclusive, Neighbourhoods and Communities.”

The participants are invited to submit images documenting the transformative capacity of urban regeneration to improve the quality of life, spatial equity, and diversity in neighbourhoods, communities and the wider city. Selected photos will be presented during the Eleventh Session of the World Urban Forum (WUF11) from June 26-30 in Katowice, Poland.
