COMPETITIONS / PHOTO: Shoot Nations 2009


‘Shoot Nations enables the smallest family, community or environmental issue to reach the highest level of global governance’

Shoot Nations is a free global online photographic competition. The competition is open to anyone aged 11 – 25 from anywhere in the world who is interested in voicing their opinion - not just photographers. In previous years the competition has received 2,500 entries from 108 countries. Over 15,000 people have visited exhibitions of Shoot Nations photographs on 4 different continents – help us make this year even bigger and better!

The best entrants will be in with the chance to be exhibited at the United Nations HQ in NYC as part of International Youth Day.

(available in 5 languages)
Friday 1st May - Friday 31st July

International children’s charity Plan and photographic organisation Shoot Experience are running the competition, now in its fourth year, and expect the response this year to be mammoth. The theme is "Growing Up in the 21st Century" - and there will be a particular focus on the importance of gender.

Entrants are required to answer the following briefs with a photo, a drawing or a graphic design.
1. Because I am a Girl / Because I am a Boy (pick one)
2. What's holding me back?
3. What could I be?
