Charles Dickens once said “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” In that spirit, we’re looking for images that capture candid, vivid and creative visions of what it means to make a difference.
New competition! Deadline: February 23, 2018
Making a difference in someone’s life is not always as hard as it sounds. Sometimes even a hug and a genuine smile are enough to make things better. What makes you feel like you’re having an impact? Is it adopting a pet from a local shelter? Helping your little sister with her homework? Or volunteering to help improve your community? In any case, few things feel as rewarding as affecting somebody’s life in a positive way.
Photography can be a great tool for arousing empathy and influencing people’s lives. Has taking a picture ever made your or someone else’s day better? Do your photos help you share with others what having an impact is? We’d love to see your take on this! Capture that special feeling and share with us what it means to make a difference.
To enter the competition you need to:
- Have an active Lobster account. If you don’t have one, sign up here.
