Change Starts Here Photo Competition

We are launching a photo competition this summer so you can share the best bits of your Expedition journey! Whether it’s a snap from a project you were working on, a moment showing the bond with local community members or a photo showing the breathtaking beauty on the adventure phase, we want to see your photography skills in action.

Share your photos making a difference to the lives of others and experiencing change in yourself. You’ll be inspiring a new wave of young people to follow in your footsteps and volunteer with Raleigh. And we have prizes you could win!

What sort of images are we looking for?

Volunteer teaching handwashing technique in Nepal

Community connection – moments with your host family, connecting with local community members, water and sanitation projects in action.

Volunteers working on environment project in Costa Rica

Environmental action – digging, planting, building, working together to protect the environment.

Volunteers walking through mountains in Nicaragua

Adventure – the mountains, national parks, sunsets and blisters! Actually, maybe not the blisters.

How do I enter?

Follow us on Instagram, upload your photo to Instagram during or after your Expedition, tag @raleighinternational in the post and use #changestartsherecompetition so we can find your photos!

The Prize

  • The winner will receive a Fujifilm Instax Camera, Instax Camera Film Roll and Cotswold Outdoor vouchers.

  • Your photo will be featured in Raleigh’s monthly newsletter to former volunteers and across our social media sites.

  • It will look great on your CV and is great experience and exposure for anyone wanting to enter the development sector or worlds of photography or communications.

  • Most importantly, it will be something to boast about at Raleigh reunions!

How do I win?

Aha, we see your competitive instincts are kicking in… we will shortlist two images and the winning photo will then be decided by an X-Factor style public vote on Raleigh’s Facebook page. Good luck!

Closing date

The competition begins on at 12pm GMT Monday 1 July and closes at 12pm GMT on Monday 16 September.
