Community photo project
For sportanddev's 100th e-Newsletter we asked you take a photo of your contribution to sport and development, and innovatively include the number 100. Here is a montage of some highlights.
We wanted to use this opportunity to highlight the enthusiasm and diversity of those interested in using sport in development and we were excited to receive photographs from many countries - Bangladesh, Ghana, Switzerland and Hungary to name a few.
The number 100 could have come in any form and in every form it came. We had bats, balls, cones, t-shirts, wheelchairs, weights, bodies, books, surfboards, flagpoles, posters, monuments, paintings, sweatbands and tennis rackets. In exchange, we promised this video, showing “the diversity, successes and contributions” of sport and development enthusiasts.
From the many fantastic submissions we received, a photo from the Naz Foundation India Trust (Naz India) was chosen as the winner for the creative way it incorporated the number 100 into an image that also highlighted the organisation's contribution to sport and development.
sportanddev would like to thank everyone who participated for helping to make the project a success and our 100th e-Newsletter such a memorable occassion.
