March 31, 2011 - Humanity Photo Awards(HPA) - Post by: admin

Since 1998, China Folklore Photographic Association (CFPA) has launched a call to photographers all over the world to document folklore phenomenon extensively and in depth. To this end, CFPA founded Humanity Photo Awards, a biennial international photographic contest. This event is blessed with UNESCO’s support and is granted with UNESCO’s logo since the 2nd HPA in 2000.

For the past 16 years, photographers from 153 countries have participated in HPA, who successfully accumulated images about cultural phenomena of 168 countries. This is a mass stock of photos on multi-culture.

As Mr. Hans d’ Orville, Assistant Director-General for Strategic Planning UNESCO said in the preface of Memories of the Mankind IV, “The Humanity Photo Awards represents an undertaking that aims a more profound mutual understanding and interaction across cultural, geographical and political frontiers. HPA allows us to reflect on human activities by people in all continents and involving all age groups, HPA will allow us to get to know each other better, and above all HPA highlights and advocates strongly the value of our common humanity in diversity.”
