Photo Competition

To celebrate the first anniversary of our re-branding as Impact Funding Partners, we are holding a photo competition which reflects our vision to help to build a fair, inclusive society where communities thrive and people are engaged, connected and able to shape their own lives. 

We want you to share your images which demonstrate the impact you are making on the different communities across Scotland, ones which reflect the challenges and successes of working to achieve a fairer Scotland for all. We are looking for action shots and images that capture the change in people’s lives. 

The Categories

Volunteering for All 
This is YOUR chance to capture what volunteering means to you. It can be the informal moments of volunteering, the weekly commitments, the corporate volunteering opportunities. The celebrations, the support, the friendship…the lifeline.   

Connected Scotland
Young, old, rural, urban – just a few examples that can cause barriers for people throughout Scotland. We want to shine a light on what is happening throughout Scotland that aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness.   

Let’s Create a Fairer Future
Together, we are all working towards equality across Scotland. How do you ensure diversity in your community, organisation or business? What does a fairer future in a welcoming Scotland look like? 

Getting it right for our Children, Young People and Families across Scotland
