All right folks, we’ve got something new and exciting for you today. The Alliance is launching our first ever – wait for it – PHOTO CONTEST!!

That’s right, we are giving you a chance to use those picture skills and show the world your stuff!

At this seminal moment in our national effort to end homelessness, we want to know: What does ending homelessness look like to you?

We want to see how you envision ending homelessness. The concept of ending homelessness can be hard to visualize – and we want to see your take. Is it services? Housing? An specific individual or story? We want you to capture it in a picture!

What’s a contest without a prize? Yeah, we don’t know either. Considering the community we know reads our blog, we think we’ve got a great one. The winner of our photo contest will receive free registration to our next conference. In addition, the winning submission will be the basis for the design of the conference – the website design, the brochure, the program journal – you name it!

The contest will run from Monday, August 9th to Friday, September 17th. We’re giving our judges a week to decide and contact the winner – the winner will be announced on Friday, September 24. In order to enter, all you have to do is go here and fill out our simple form to enter! Full text of the contest terms and conditions are available on the website. In general , as long as your work is your own and appropriate, you shouldn’t have any problems.

So get going! To enter the contest, please submit your photo here. (Only photos submitted through the online form will be considered.) Photo contest rules can be found on the website.

This is an important year in the national effort to end homelessness and sometime soon, we can anticipate a country where everyone has a place to call home. We want to know – from YOU! – how we’re going to get there.
