One of our ongoing missions is a collaboration with PhotoPhilanthropy to bring awareness to social and environmental issues around the world. With the Your Photo for Social Change by PhotoPhilanthropy mission, we want to get your help to shed light on some of today’s most pressing issues.

The winning photo will be announced at the PhotoPhilanthropy Activist Awards on March 8, 2014, and the photographer will also receive a personal critique of his or her photos by renowned photojournalist Ed Kashi. You can read more about the mission here.

After the first week there have been tons of great photos submitted covering a wide breadth of issues, including poverty, homelessness, child trafficking, environmental degradation, animal rights, migrant workers, civil rights and LGBT rights. To provide some inspiration, here are some great shots that have already been submitted.

We hope you will participate!
