2012 Habitat World photo contest

Every volunteer has a story to tell. Share yours in a photo.


Habitat World
’s 2011 photo contest winner Chris Sebilia took his photograph, “Concrete Break,” while on a Global Village trip in Chiang Mai, Thailand.


A completed Habitat for Humanity project. A smile on a volunteer’s face. A homeowner building their family’s house. A view of a revitalized neighborhood, now seen in a new light.

We’d love to see your photographs that reveal how people come together to build homes, communities and hope.

We know that Habitat supporters and Habitat World readers are highly engaged in many different places and many different ways. So whether it’s a local build in your community or a renovation project halfway around the world, use your camera to show us what Habitat means to you — and how vital our shared work is in changing people’s lives.

The grand prize

This year’s contest winner will be awarded a spot as a volunteer during the 29th annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, which will return to Haiti in late 2012 to help further rebuilding efforts.
