In the ultimate celebration of humankind and the home we share, Portrait of Humanity 2020 will be exhibited in Space
In September 2020, in a feat never before achieved with a photographic exhibition, 200 shortlisted images will be used to broadcast a message of peace and unity from humankind to infinity — amongst numerous other prizes.
Our partner, Sent Into Space, will launch a screen into the stratosphere with a 360° camera, so photographers can see their images displayed against the extraordinary backdrop of Space. The images will then be beamed onwards in binary code, travelling unimpeded through the solar system at the speed of light. These messages could continue on an infinite journey — or until another civilisation receives and decodes them.
Help celebrate individuality, community and unity on a truly borderless scale.
