ICS photo competition

Entry to the 2018 ICS photo competition is now closed - check out the five winning shots.

This year's competition will open in August 2019.


Host home

We're looking for an image that captures your daily family life on placement, outside the project work. This could be your host home, host family or an activity you and your hosts got up to.


What makes your counterpart so special or stand out?  Do you have a picture that sums up your relationship?

Environment and community

Photos should portray the characteristics of the local community or the environment you’re based in.


Photos should demonstrate the work undertaken by you and your team: show us the communities you worked with, and how your projects contributed to community development. 

Action at Home

After three months on placement, how did you change things in your community back home? Still going? Even better!

VSO will use the information you give us in accordance with the ICS data protection and privacy statement

Before you enter, make sure you've read the competition rules and the full terms and conditions.
