Friend-Ship 2

Photography Award winners

In 2020, the world went into lockdown. We learned that social distance does not have to mean emotional isolation. Video calls have now become part of our lives, helping us through crises of all kinds.

With Friend-Ship Screenshot Competition, Youmanity aimed to help to reclaim the value of friendship by encouraging participants to celebrate family and friends through a screenshot!

We received over two thousand entries from 43 different countries. Here is a gallery showcasing the winner, runners up and finalists' screenshots.
