Plan UK presents Shoot Nations - a global photography project for young people aged 11 to 25.
20/10/2011. Due to lack of funding the Shoot Nations project is currently on hold until further notice. Sign up to the mailing list and Facebook page to stay up to date! Please contact us for project related queries.
Shoot Nations is an annual, global photography project including a competition, workshops and exhibitions on various continents. Each year focuses on a different global issue and the photographs produced are presented in an official ceremony to the United Nations in New York each year.
2010 was a fantastic year for the project with workshops and exhibitions in London, Liverpool, Dakar (Senegal) and Cartagena (Colombia). A group of young people also presented the winning photos to Ban-Ki Moon at the United Nations headquarters in New York to celebrate the launch of the International Year of Youth.
In 2010 Shoot Nations was a One World Media finalist
