Welcome to the “What is Happiness for You?” Photography Awards, brought to you by Agora. In a world teeming with diverse cultures, languages, and perspectives, happiness holds a unique significance for each individual. Through this global photography contest, we invite you to capture and share your vision of happiness. This is not just a call for photographs; it’s an invitation to tell the story behind what happiness means to you, personally.
Everyone, from any corner of the world, is encouraged to participate. Whether you’re a professional photographer, a hobbyist, or someone who’s never shared their work publicly before, we want to see your interpretation of joy. But this competition goes beyond the visual representation; we ask you to accompany your image with a text that delves into the essence of the captured moment. Describe what happiness signifies in the context of your photograph, sharing the emotions, memories, or stories that the image evokes for you.
What does happiness look like through your lens? Is it a moment of solitude, the laughter of loved ones, the tranquility of nature, or perhaps something entirely unexpected? By sharing these moments, we hope to compile a mosaic of happiness that reflects its myriad forms and meanings across different cultures and individuals.
As we gather submissions from around the globe, our collective understanding of happiness will broaden, offering a glimpse into the vast tapestry of human emotion and experience. This is your opportunity to showcase what happiness means to you and to connect with others who are doing the same.
Join us in this exploration of joy, share your vision, and let’s discover together the infinite interpretations of happiness. Through your eyes, we look forward to uncovering what this universal yet deeply personal sentiment means to people everywhere. Submit your photograph and story, and be part of a worldwide dialogue on the essence of happiness. Let’s create a gallery of joy that spans the globe, one photo at a time.
