Make A Difference ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST 2013
Make A Difference (MAD) is pleased to announce 2013 Online Photography Contest. This competition is to recognize the work of outstanding photographers and also to create awareness about Make A Difference’s initiatives. We also felt the importance of preserving fauna as well as philanthrophy. Hence the competition is initiated during wildlife week (Oct 2 – Oct 8) and Joy of Giving week (Oct 2 – Oct 8) . The competition is open to all photographers of Indian Nationality.
The winners stand a chance to win a total cash prize of INR 10,000/- (INR 5,000 to one winner for each category).
MAD, or Make A Difference, is a youth volunteer network, working with Children at risk in India. Made up of mostly youth volunteers, MAD imparts English communication skills to children in orphanages, street shelters and poor homes.
From 2010 on, Make A Difference started using the Cambridge University Press material in its classrooms. The English project takes learners from starter to intermediate level using the Cambridge English for Schools series of textbooks.
