The winning photograph from the 2010 Habitat World photo contest. 

Last year, hundreds of photographers from around the world entered the inaugural Habitat World photo contest. Their pictures — nearly 650 images were considered by our judges — created a fascinating focus on the importance and vitality of Habitat’s work.
Now that last year’s winner Neil Reid has shared his build experiences from Nepal in New Hope in Nepal, it’s time to officially launch the 2011 contest. Read more about Neil’s trip to Nepal.

Submit your photos
Once again, show us what Habitat means to you through images that help communicate how Habitat’s mission plays out in your experience: volunteers, families, houses, the need that exists in your community, the change Habitat has helped create.

The grand prize
 The contest winner will be awarded a spot as a volunteer at the 2011 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Haiti. In addition, photos and statements from the contest winner and top four finalists will be featured in the December 2011 issue of Habitat World and on habitat.org.
