The idea of cultural heritage is something that unites us all, and includes everything from sites and places, to objects and artefacts, to cultural traditions such as dance, music and cuisine.

UNESCO maintains extensive databases of some of the world’s most important cultural treasures, including the World Heritage List, Memories of the World Register and Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The contest, however, is open to any and all examples of cultural heritage, from world-famous landmarks, to places, objects and traditions that may be precious just to you.

The photo and story contest is open until 18 August, 2015. You can enter as many times as you like, but each entry must include a photo and description, and can be submitted on Facebook or Instagram by tagging the post with the #Unite4Heritage hashtag. Posts must also be set to ‘Public’ in order to be included.
