International Student Photo Contest, 2016: Urbanization

AUGUST 17, 2016

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs announces its fourth annual International Student Photography Contest.

The topic for this year's photo contest is Urbanization. According to a 2014 UN report, the world's urban population is five times as large as it was in 1950, growing from 746 million to 3.9 billion in 2014. From the mass migration out of China's countryside, to the vast urban sprawl of Mexico City, to the massive growth of cities in the Sun Belt of the United States, urbanization is on the increase throughout the world.

While it might mean a path out of poverty and easier access to education for many, it can also increase income inequality and contribute to climate change. Please submit photos that depict urbanization and city life, showing either the advantages or the drawbacks.

The contest will be conducted on Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Network, our social media platform for exploring the role of ethics in international relations. Check out last year's winners on the theme of Climate Change, and see below for details on how to participate.

ELIGIBILITY: All students of every nationality are eligible. Non-students will be disqualified. The minimum age is 13.

TOPIC: Urbanization: Please submit photos that depict urbanization and city life, showing either the advantages or the drawbacks.

Larry Diamond's core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If the U.S. does not reclaim its traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian trend could become a tsunami that could provide an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the 21st century into a dark time of surging authoritarianism.
