#EachDayISee Instagram photo contest finalists and National Geographic honorable mentions

|

This page in:

The #EachDayISee photo contest wrapped up on February 13, having received more than 1,400 submissions. To say that the number and quality of the entries exceeded all our expectations would be an understatement. We asked you to share your view of the world, and the visual stories we received from every region were breathtaking. Beyond the photos themselves, most submissions included detailed captions that set the context and helped viewers understand the stories behind the photos.

So, before announcing the 20 photos that received the most “likes”, I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank-you on behalf of our entire online and social media team. You’ve inspired us to engage even more closely with our social media followers to help us relate the true stories of ending poverty to a wider audience. Without further ado, behold the 20 photos selected by the public, which will be posted on World Bank Instagram for final voting.

Note: Instagram recommends using the most up-to-date web browser for the best viewing experience.

This photo was taken by Sudanese refugee and photojournalism student, Khamis. An image as powerful as the story he wrote to accompany it. He wrote: This is Kaka, a Sudanese primary school student in Ajuong Thok Refugee Camp in South Sudan. “Ajuong Thok is a good place for me to learn without hearing gunshots,” she said. This is an opportunity. Education and school materials are free for refugees and here, refugees can form bonds with different people. Educating girls is important to reduce early marriage and for improved family planning.

Je publie de nouveau cette photo pour faire écho au projet de la @banquemondiale sur ce que vous voudriez voir changer dans le monde. La Banque Mondiale lutte activement contre le réchauffement climatique et en faveur de l'environnement par différents programmes tels que le Global Gas Flaring Reduction et d'autres encore en lien avec les Nations Unies... Une main tendue vers le ciel en faveur de la qualité de l'air. I post this photo again to echo the project of @worldbank on what you would like to see changed in the world. The World Bank actively fight against global warming and protect the environment through various programs such as the Global Gas Flaring Reduction and others in connection with the United Nations ... A helping hand to the sky for the air quality. #EachDayIsee #JeVoisChaqueJour #air #life #hope

#cadadiaveo #eachdayisee El cambio; cuando queremos el cambio es para mejorar, para avanzar y progresar. la humanidad es consiente de la realidad social pero solo ve y observa mas no pone su granito de arena para el cambio para así vivir en un mundo mejor donde todos somos iguales, una solo especie, por eso yo he elegido esta foto como parte de mi cambio a mi país, al mundo. The change; when we want to change is to improve, to advance and progress. humanity is aware of the social reality but just go and see but not put their bit for change

The Rural Life. Girls in villages especially those from poor and backward families remain uneducated and oppressed all their life affecting future generations too.Educating girls from villages will help with women empowerment, to make them self sufficient bringing them out of the life of oppression, helping whole family, their children and future generations. Eligible girls will be supported for higher education and income generating or employment opportunities too. Educating these girls helps to improve standard of living not only for them but their whole family and future generations building up the whole society esp. those from villages in rural India.Girls, the future women are the centre of family. Educating them makes them understand the problems and solve these in a better way improving the standards of living not only for their family but for whole generation in future and the community in general. Educating girls from villages helps to improve standard of living not only for them but their whole family and future generations building up the whole society esp. those from villages in rural India. #poverty #girls #education #educatinggirls #society #unicef #ngo #emporverment #girls #health ##Asia #India #Bihar #Biharodyssey #iphoneonly #storyteller #Documentary #photojournalism #dailylife #reportage #Reportagespotlight #personalproject #therurallife #village #smile #eyes #beauty #eachdayisee #endpoverty

Bonjour Anaïs. Les photos qui se sont vues décerner une mention honorable par l'équipe Your Shot du magazine américain National Geographic ne remportent pas de prix à proprement parler, mais ont la chance d'être relayées sur le Web par nos partenaires et ceux du National Geographic, et d'être ainsi diffusées sur des écrans d'ordinateurs, de tablettes et de téléphones mobiles du monde entier.
Merci encore pour votre participation. Nous espérons que vous continuerez de nous suivre sur Instagram et que vous participerez à notre prochain concours !
