Ethical Service & Photography Contest: Submit by August 20th

In their on-going effort to promote ethical community service and fight the sharing of “poverty porn” on social media by otherwise well-meaning volunteers, our colleagues at are sponsoring a photography contest.

Entering is easy and open to students, faculty and community partners: post the photo on your instagram account, tagging it with the following:  #globalservice   #ethicalphotography and #GWServes. You can also tag it with the contest category you are entering, such as #mutuallearning.

The contest sponsors have well-articulated guidelines for selecting photos that represent people “truthfully and show dignity, equality, support and integrity… ensuring that those being represented in the images maintain the right to share their story in their own way.”  Share details about the contest with your students and community partners by sending this link:
