Photo & Essay Submission

Show us why you want to volunteer in your to-be host country by submitting an original photo inspired by it. For example, shots with the flag or a symbol of the destination. It's great if you're in the photo too, but not required. Please don't upload images you don't own, as we won't consider those entries valid. This photo doesn't have to be taken in the country you're traveling to.


Accepted images need to be 2MB in size or smaller, and use one of the following file extensions: JPG, PNG and GIF.

Please submit a short essay (no more than 250 words) to complement your photo submission.

Not mandatory, but we'll love send some Tweet love to our winner!

If you have an Instagram account, please include your username here. Not required, though!
