Add Your Photo to Our History

InterAction Celebrates its 15th Annual Photo Contest

For 15 years, InterAction’s photography contest has focused on incredible humanitarian and development work. Once again, we encourage you to submit your most powerful photos that illustrate innovative, effective, and inspiring efforts in humanitarian assistance and international relief and development.

We are proud of this tradition, which has showcased thousands of photos that depict values such as self-reliance, innovative technology, shared values, and partnerships around the world. InterAction strongly believes in these tenets (see for more information on these core values) and our community is richer when we celebrate them. 

To honor the milestone of 15 years, this year we will honor winners in three categories in addition to the grand prize winner. The categories are: best global development photo, best humanitarian assistance photo, and best photo taken on a mobile phone.

Get innovative, and get inspired. As an avid amateur photographer I encourage you to apply. You too can add your photo to our proud history.
