The Enduring Power Of Charities And The Legacy Of Chernobyl!

My company, C3imaging, sponsored a photographic competition in February, organised by the NCVO.

The aim of the competition was to highlight the positive impact charities have on individuals and communities.

More than 40 photographs were submitted and the winner was chosen from a shortlist of 10 entries.

I was privileged to be on the judging panel with Guardian photographer Eamonn McCabe and professional photographer Theodore Wood.

This poignant image, of a baby recovering in hospital from an injured leg, captured our hearts. The photograph was submitted by the charity ‘Camps for the children of Chernobyl’.

‘Camps for the children of Chernobyl’, received a cheque for £150, to help continue their work, providing medical treatment and respite holidays for children suffering illnesses resulting from the radiation outbreak at Chernobyl in 1986.

To see all 10 shortlisted entries, visit www.ncvo-vol.org.uk/good-society-photocomp-shortlist. Do take time to view the photographs. Each one has a story to tell.

The photographs can also be viewed on the Guardian Newspaper web site at http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/gallery/2010/feb/23/voluntary-organisations.

If you have any comments, I would be delighted to hear from you. My name is Steve Howard. You have been reading the digital circus.
