#makeheritagefun Global Photo Contest

Thank you for your entries, results will be announced shortly!

In an effort to preserve our heritage and share it with the world, GoUNESCO introduces its new endeavour of an online global photography competition. If you are a photography and heritage enthusiast, participate in this contest and share the enthusiasm. The winning photographs will be showcased on GoUNESCO’s homepage, Facebook page, and on our Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Cultural Heritage

UNESCO describes tangible as "buildings and historic places, monuments, artifacts, etc., which are considered worthy of preservation for the future. These include objects significant to the archaeology, architecture, science or technology of a specific culture." So if you find monuments or heritage structures that have left you awe-struck, send us the pictures to share the heritage enthusiasm.

Natural Heritage

The most lasting heritage that we have collectively inherited is nature. It is an all encompassing topic that features flora, fauna, ecosystems, geological structures etc. If the magnanimous beauty of nature evokes wonder in you, if it makes you feel insignificant yet grateful, or just simply makes you smile, here is a platform for you to share all that you see and all that you're proud of from your corner of the world.
