ABOUT THE YOUTHLEAD PHOTO CONTEST
Showcase your work globally! This photo contest provides you, as a young changemaker, a global platform to show the impact of your changemaking activities. We will award ten prizes to the best photos that demonstrate how your work creates a positive impact in your community.
