CCVS Photo Competition – Closes 29th September

We are delighted to announce that the CCVS photo competition is back for 2023!  

This year’s theme: Improving Lives 

The competition is open now until 4pm on Friday 29 September.

What’s in it for you? 

  • Cash prizes will be awarded to the organisations linked to the winning photographs.
  • An opportunity to showcase your organisation. We know the difference local charities and groups make to the community, but we want everyone to be able to see a snapshot of your valuable work in pictures.  Shortlisted entries will be displayed at a future CCVS event and we will also share media releases of the winning entries in our publications and with local media.


Judges Choice: £150 will be awarded to the organisation linked to the photo chosen as the winner by the judges.

People’s Choice: £150 will be awarded to the organisation linked to the photo which receives the highest number of votes in the people’s choice.

People’s Choice runner up: £75 will be awarded to the organisation linked to the photo which receives the second highest number of votes in the people’s choice.

The theme – Improving Lives – can encompass any part of what your organisation does, whether that’s photos of your team working in the office, your volunteers doing what they do best, (and improving their own lives as well as those who benefit), your organisation running an event, having contact with the people you support, looking after your green space or community building. Let your imagination run wild!

Anyone who is involved with a Cambridgeshire voluntary organisation, group or charity can take part – clients, volunteers, staff, trustees or supporters. So make sure you share the details of the competition with your teams and networks to encourage a variety of photos.

Images may be added to our photo library to use in our future marketing and communications, including our website, and social media channels.
