New Photo Mission: Helping Refugees

By EyeEm Team - 2 min read

Photograph the ways we can help refugees in our brand new mission with THE DIGITALE

Imagine having to leave your home, your job and your country – thousands of people have the same experience daily.
Refugees are going through a struggle many of us can’t even imagine, and it’s vitally important they are helped and welcomed with hospitality and warmth.

And it’s not only governments who can help. As individuals, there’s so much we can do – from donating food, water or clothes to helping out in a local shelter.

We’ve teamed up with THE DIGITALE for this newest mission, Helping Refugees.

By Massimiliano Ferraro

Your Mission: Think of ways refugees can feel welcome. From smiling faces to full donation boxes, this mission is about positivity, inclusiveness and the acceptance and help of refugees from their temporary homelands. Show us the kindness and warmth that we can extend – this mission is all about the good sides of humanity!

Your Reward: The top photos will be bought, licensed and published to support the effort to encourage people to help refugees. The top fifteen images will also be featured in an EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: September 14, 2015
