To mark World Red Cross Red Crescent Day on May 8th 2012, we want to capture and exhibit online the experiences and ideas of volunteers from across the world. It’s your opportunity to show everyone how and why our amazing community of volunteers do what they do. Getting involved is very easy.
A picture speaks a thousand words, so tell us about your Red Cross Red Crescent experience with a photo. It doesn’t need to be about a trip to some exotic location or dramatic event – unless that’s what you’re experiencing – but should show the world your work, effects or your passion for the movement.
Also, don’t worry if you don’t have access to the latest technology. Many mobile phones have decent cameras and we’re more interested in capturing your experience than something technically perfect.
That said, it’s always a good idea to try to take the best photo that you can. Here’s some advice.
