MACDC is hosting its second annual Member Photo Contest to celebrate visual representations of the impact our members are having in the diverse communities that they serve.


Submission Details:

There are three categories for photo submissions, based on the three points in MACDC's CDC Theory of Change:

  1. Building Communities
  2. Improving Places
  3. Transforming Lives

All submitted photos must fit in one of these categories. Within each category, photos can demonstrate improvements to neighborhoods or homes (before/after shots), feature community meetings and/or group activities, or highlight a specific program or leader.

MACDC staff will evaluate the photos based on a variety of factors, including creativity, storytelling power, composition, and relevance to the submission categories.
