InterAction, an alliance of US-based international NGOs, is inviting entries for InterAction’s 2018 Effective Assistance Photography Contest. This 16th Annual Photo Contest calls for the submission of provocative photos that illustrate innovative, effective and inspiring efforts in the areas of humanitarian assistance, international relief and development. Examples of empowering women, youth potential, self-reliance, innovative technology, shared values, and partnerships are encouraged, though entries are not limited to those areas. All images should be of work done outside of the United States.


One Grand Prize Winner will receive US$1,000 and the Effective Assistance Photography Certificate. The winning photo will also be showcased at InterAction’s 2018 Forum, to be held from 12 to 14 June 2018 in Washington, D.C., USA.

Three Category winners – Best Youth Potential photo; Best Women’s Empowerment photo; and Best Photo taken with a Mobile Phone – will each receive US$100 and have their photographs displayed on an online gallery at www.interaction.org. Six Honorable Mentions will also have their photographs displayed in an online gallery at www.interaction.org.


All can participate in this photo contest, with the exception of InterAction staff. Entries are limited to a total of 3 photos per person, regardless of category. Entries should be 300 dpi or larger at a size no smaller than roughly 3” x 5” (file sizes are to be less than 8MB).


Photo submissions are to be done online by 6 April 2018.
