The UN's Millennium Development Goals include 'eradicating extreme poverty and hunger' and 'achieving universal primary education', to be achieved by 2015. With that date steadily approaching, it's clear there is still a lot of change that needs to occur. The UN's 2nd annual photo contest aims at reinvigorating the cause by showing photos which offer a 'window to the world'. Winners in 3 divisions (amateur, professional and people's choice) were awarded in eight subcategories corresponding with the goals. These are some of the winning photos.
