Charity is a very important part of the SHINE Photo Award!
Not every child in the world is as fortunate as the children and families on the submitted images. There are many children in the world who don’t have enough to eat and drink, can’t afford education, don’t live in a safe environment or have only little chance of a long, safe and self-determined life. That is why we give back and support charity organizations which take care of those in need.
In 2021 we raised 2.005,51€ for charity! The money was donated to these charity organizations:
Mercy Ships / Back to live / Malteser International /Plan International (Please read the details of each project below)
In 2020 – the first year of the SHINE Photo Award we raised 1.712,50€ for charity. The money was donated to the these charity organizations:
Mercy Ships / Back to live / Ein Herz für Kinder (A Heart For Children) /UNICEF
A big THANK YOU goes out to all the participants, judges, supporters and friends! Without YOU this wouldn’t be possible! You SHINE!
