Winners of the 2015 EWB-USA Photo Contest

We were blown away with this year’s 2015 Photo Contest submissions! EWB-USA’s volunteers are fantastic photographers, and it was no easy task to choose only three winners from the nearly 200 images we received.

Volunteers uploaded their best photos that showed people working, revealed personality and character, challenged stereotypes, embodied the image of “stronger together” and captured empowerment. We narrowed down the list and selected three winning photos: our grand prize winner will get a $150 Amazon gift card, second place gets a $50 Amazon gift card and third place gets a $25 Amazon gift card.

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all of our participants for entering! This year’s contest was such a success that we’re considering holding another contest in spring 2016. Keep those cameras handy and check the blog and our Facebook page for future contest information.
