Now, I’m delighted to be able to write again – announcing some winners!</strong></p> <p>We asked people to take images around the idea of AID. Primarily we wanted people to use their own skill and creativity to capture interesting and moving images. And hundreds of them certainly did that!</p> <p>We set a couple of points of guidance:</p> <ul><li>How “aid” is changing the local community;</li> <li>What kinds of activities and campaigns in developed countries are being carried out to “aid” the less/least developed world.</li> </ul><p>But I was really interested to see what the global community of photographers came back with. It was difficult to pick winners in amongst so many great entries. <strong><a href="http://wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/131787/voteable_entries/30806700" target="_blank" title="Helping the Disadvantage Help Themselves - Larrie Louis" rel="nofollow">Larry Louie ‘Helping the disadvantaged help themselves’</a></strong> (above) was judged in first place.
