VODA Photography Competition

We want to see you in action!

Here at VODA we are well aware of the fantastic work that community groups, voluntary organisations and charities carry out in North Tyneside. Now we want to see that work in action. We would love to see your images on the theme of ‘Community Action’ – anything from events you have held in the community, to pictures of your volunteers in action or from trips and outings you organise.

We’re running the competition right over the summer months to give you plenty of time to take and submit photographs and we want to be able to use your images to populate our website and our offices to show off the fantastic work carried out by the sector.

There will be three prizes:

  • Overall winner: £75 high street vouchers
  • First runner up: £50 high street vouchers
  • Second runner up: £25 high street vouchers

Submissions will be judged by a panel of VODA Board Members, volunteers and staff.
