Speaking up through pictures: Impacting Lives Challenge 2017

May 2017    

By the Methodist Welfare Services Communications Team

Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) is inviting youths between 13 and 30 years of age to join our inaugural Instagram photography and videography initiative that spotlights the less fortunate in Singapore.

The Impacting Lives Challenge 2017 provides the opportunity to interact with and speak up for the disadvantaged in our community. They include underprivileged children, distressed families, socially isolated senior citizens, frail elderly, and the chronically ill, who are served by MWS.

You are invited to visit selected MWS centres during a series of MWS Open Houses in June and July 2017. Share a photo or video of a beneficiary or an encounter that depicts an illuminating point or a moving story on Instagram, coupled with a meaningful story caption.

Prizes will be awarded for the following eight categories: Most Popular Photo; Most Touching Photo; Picture of Hope; Picture of Strength; Picture of Warmth; Picture of Care; Most Popular Video; and Most Touching Video.

Our panel of judges include: The Straits Times Picture Editor Stephanie Yeow; lifestyle photographer and Nikon Ambassador Bryan Foong; Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung of The Methodist Church in Singapore; MWS Group Executive Director Jenny Bong; and MWS Director of Communications & Engagement Yap Lee Lee.

You may also find out more about the full scope of MWS’ work, our Centres, posting guidelines and judging criteria on the website. For prize sponsorship or general queries, email us at ilc@mws.sg.

Winning an award is not the most important thing – making an impact on the poor and needy is. Your point of view matters more than you can imagine. Take on our challenge and register for free at www.mws.ilc.sg by 21 May 2017.
