Nonprofits know that visual storytelling has the power to prompt social change on a level that no other medium can. Photography can instantly provoke an emotional response which can lead to a call to action.
To share the story of the inspiring work that hunger related organizations are doing, and all the individual volunteers fighting hunger this season, we’re launching a Fight Hunger Photo Contest.
Here’s your chance to be recognized for the amazing work you’re doing in your community. Today VolunteerMatch is launching the Fight Hunger Photo Contest. The goal is simple: to raise awareness of the work being done by nonprofits and their volunteers. We want to encourage as many nonprofits as possible to tell their story, so this contest is meant to be easy, fun and simple.
Here’s How to Enter:
1) Simply upload a picture of you, your organization and/or your volunteers doing hunger related volunteer work to the VolunteerMatch Facebook Page with a caption about fighting hunger.
2) Be sure to also share your photo on Twitter with the hashtag #FightHunger.
3) That’s it. The photo with the most likes, comments and shares wins. Contest ends 12/28/2012. Update: Contest extended until 01/04/2013.
Prize: The winning photo will be featured on the Engaging Volunteers blog along with an interview. We encourage you to take this opportunity to show off the incredible work that you’re doing in your community.
Most importantly, we’d like to encourage you to reach out to your volunteers and ask them submit their photos to the Fight Hunger Photo Contest. We’ll be sharing the visual stories we receive throughout the contest as they come in so be sure to send your entry as soon as possible.
