Vote Your Top 3 Unity Nominees | Imagekind Summer Games
The submissions are in, the nominees have been chosen, now it’s time for you YOU to vote for your top three favorites!
Here are the top 10 nominees that our esteemed judges thought best represented unity for the Imagekind Summer Games! We received a ton of amazing submissions and narrowing it down to these ten was by no means an easy task. The judges argued, they debated, they thought long and hard about which images should be chosen, and by the end of it, they were able to come together, reconcile and compromise. I think they all learned a lesson in the importance of unity from this event!
Here are the 10 nominees. Now, YOU get to vote for which THREE you think are best suited to represent the theme of unity. Vote at the bottom of the post and we will then take the top three images with the most votes and award them with their respective prizes.
Vote soon because the polls are closed on Friday, August 15 at 10pm PDT.
If you don’t see the image you submitted below, know that the competition was fierce. Also, don’t give up! Our Pushing the Limits event is well underway and you have up until 10pm PDT tomorrow, Thursday, August 14 to submit your favorite images that best represent the theme.
Anyone can vote, so make sure to include your friends, family or even the stranger on the corner in on the action!

How it Represents Unity: This clown fish and anemone are a cool example of unity. The anemone’s tentacles protect the Clown fish from predators and the clown fish helps the anemone by cleaning it.
How it Represents Unity: Visually, this photo shows four boys unified by their focus on a single book. As well, mosaics are made of disparate fragments unified by art. The photo was made in the courtyard of the Gugu S’thebe Arts and Culture Centre in South Africa, 13 years after the end of apartheid. These boys are younger than the country’s new democracy, the product of years of united, hard work.
How it Represents Unity: Art inspired by a traditional Tohono O’odham weaving design. This composition depicts a person entering a pathway that has only one outcome. Symbolically, this is the maze of life that we all travel through from birth to death. The outer ring of linked figures represents the circle of souls who unite to assist in the dramatic process of lowering spirit into the realm of land dwellers.
How it Represents Unity: Lessons from Nature – stay close and help each other ‘Unity’
How it Represents Unity: This is a photo of my great-grandmother, my grandmother, my mother and me. I believe we all build on what the previous generations taught us, and even though my great-grandmother and grandmother are no longer living, I still feel their presence and know they guide me through life.
How it Represents Unity: It takes 4 planes working together to create the almost perfect heart in the sky that you see here.
How it Represents Unity: What greater unity is there than the bond between sisters? Sisters share hopes, dreams and secrets. “A Magical Walk” was created from the fond memories I have of being the big sister watching over my little sister.
How it Represents Unity: This is a picture of a forest fire fighting crew hiking into work for the day. They have to work as one in order to survive the day, and to help others. Without unity, they would be unsuccessful.
How it Represents Unity: Peace is the ultimate unifier! Síocháin is the Irish word for peace and this painting was conceived while Senator George Mitchell was negotiating and ultimately achieved a peace accord, between Northern and the Republic of Ireland in 1998. Green, white and orange are the colors of the Irish Flag, green represents the Irish Catholics, the orange represents Northern Ireland and Irish Protestants.
How it Represents Unity: A shell and its reflection become one, symbolizing unity.
