NOOR initiates and produces projects with the aim to raise awareness about specific social issues we care about, to educate or to brand our work. To realize projects, we seek the collaboration of sponsor partners, NGO’s and foundations, and the financial support of grants and subsidies. As a group, we thank all the organizations and their employees, past and present, who have been supportive of our mission:

Nikon is one of the leading companies in the world for photographic products and imaging solutions. Nikon sponsors NOOR as official digital photographic equipment provider. The partnership has seen Nikon Europe BV supply the member photographers with an expansive range of professional digital camera equipment, as well as film scanners.

Nikon Europe is our main sponsor partner.

Nikon supplied NOOR with grants to realize its Climate Change by NOOR group project in 2009 and 2010, the Brazil by NOOR group project in 2011 and 2012, the Modern Day Slavery group project in 2013, the Food For Thought group project in 2014, and the NOOR on Africa in 2016.
