Our aim is to share images of kindness with as many people as possible to inspire more kindness. We also know that these images make people feel good. We include it as part of the contest so that you can inspire your own family, friends, and network with your good work. As we value what the public thinks, we have also created an award for Public Choice to celebrate that, too. And because there can also be photos that are terrific and that should also be considered, we will select 30 of the best that were not included in the top vote recipients. So there are two ways to be selected as a finalist!
This year, we have also created a new category to celebrate the good work nonprofits and charities are doing in our communities. Ten photos will be selected for consideration for this prize, which will be awarded by our judges.
