How To Succeed In Our 2019 Photo Contest: Top Tips From 2018 Winners

How To Succeed In Our 2019 Photo Contest: Top Tips From 2018 Winners

With the right image, you have the power to communicate your organization’s mission to donors in a compelling way. GlobalGiving’s annual Photo Contest gives our nonprofit partners a platform to show off your best shots, spread awareness, and gain new donors! To get you started, here are a few helpful tips from three top finishers in the 2018 Photo Contest:

Anjali Mittal – International Association for Human Values

DO use an image that you created yourself. 

“If you are considering entering the Photo Contest, you have probably been an avid photography hobbyist for some time and have your own personally created library of images. Draw on these images to find inspiration for your non-profit. The same things that inspire you are likely to be reflected in or have motivated your non-profit in some way. Once you find the connection that speaks to you, it will speak to others who may be moved to contribute to your non-profit.”
