The word ‘harmony’ embraces many different facets and meanings.

A pleasing combination or arrangement of different colors, lines, or sounds; An agreement or accord between two or more parties; Calm or tranquility; When two or more different stories or accounts support each other; It means working together and creating or recognizing beauty through and because of differences.

In a world so filled with discord and conflict, we want to highlight the beauty of unity and harmony that exists in all corners and in all aspects of life. So grab your camera and submit your images that show how our differences and unique qualities can bring us together, how beautiful the world is because of the diversity that exists—in nature, in culture, in humanity.

Share glimpses and images of harmony in your part of the world. Submit your images to the IPA One-Shot Themed Photography Contest HERE.
