NCVO Photography Competition 2013

Welcome to NCVO members wishing to take part in the NCVO photography competition 2013 in partnership with PhotoVoice.

PhotoVoice is pleased to be a part of Change Makers, a photographic competition run in conjunction with the National Council for Voluntary Organisations for their 8000+ members. The theme of this year’s competition is Change Makers so we are looking for images that show the positive impact that your organisation is having on the world. Ask yourself:

• Who are the change makers in your organisation?
• How are they bringing about change? 
• What is the impact of that change?

There are some great prizes on offer in two categories:
1. Photographs taken by people who work for your organisation (paid staff members, trustees or volunteers, etc.)
2. Photographs taken by service users (beneficiaries or participants of your organisation)

For more details on how to enter, please go to NCVO Members’ Photography Competition 2013

With over 10 years’ experience in designing and delivering participatory photography projects for marginalised and vulnerable individuals and groups, PhotoVoice’s pioneering projects enable those who might traditionally be the subjects of photography to become its creator.

Since 2000, we have worked with partner organisations across the sector, including those benefitting refugees, people who are blind and partially sighted, street children, people living with HIV/AIDS and those with differing requirements for inclusion. Currently, we are working with Catch 22 with young people affected by gangs and knife crime; with members of the National Working Group for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People on a Comic Relief / BBC Children in Need funded project called Having Our Say Too and with HM Prison Leeds on a project aiming to reduce re-offending rates.

We run dedicated training workshops for individuals and groups wanting to introduce participatory photography into their organisations and their beneficiaries. Places are still available for courses in 2013. Please visit PhotoVoice Training for more details.

We have also produced a considerable range of resources for working with different groups of beneficiaries as well as a statement of ethical practice which outlines the considerations and good practice guidelines that apply to any participatory photography work. Click here for more details
