The Photo Contest is here!

It’s Photo Contest time! A striking image captures the attention of the audience. The power of photos translates to your project pages as well. Your project’s main photo is often the first thing donors see when searching for projects to support. We have found that donors spend about 30 seconds on a project page before deciding to donate or not. Photos are a powerful tool that helps capture a donor’s attention.

To promote your photos, GlobalGiving is hosting our fourth annual Photo Contest.
