EyeEm recently collaborated with PhotoPhilanthropy to bring you a unique mission – take photos of social and environmental issues that you care about to raise awareness. Almost 1400 photos were submitted by over 400 contributors to the Your Photo for Social Change by PhotoPhilanthropy album. The grand prize winner receives a photo critique by renowned photojournalist Ed Kashi and gets featured on the EyeEm and PhotoPhilanthropy blogs.
