WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S. NGOs working on global poverty and humanitarian assistance efforts, has opened submissions for its 13th annual Effective Assistance Photography Contest.
Across the globe, groundbreaking acts of innovation, self-reliance, partnerships and resolve happen every day. Such acts are the cornerstone of development, collectively building a more sustainable, just and inclusive world. For more than a decade, InterAction's photo contest has honored these acts. This year, the tradition continues.
The Effective Assistance Photography Contest focuses on incredible humanitarian and development work. Every year, hundreds of photographers — professional and amateur — submit their most powerful photos that illustrate inventive, effective and inspiring efforts in international relief and development.
How You Can Enter
Those interested in submitting photos to this year's contest can find more information on contest rules, photo requirements and the application at www.interaction.org/photo.

The deadline to submit is March 13, 2015. All images should be of work done outside of the United States and photographers should own the rights to any images submitted.
One grand prize winner will receive $200 and the opportunity to accept the Effective Assistance Photography Certificate at InterAction's 2015 Forum, June 22-24, in Washington, D.C.
