Through a loan from their credit union, a family in Bolivia is able to make hats to sell at their local market.

Madison, WI—World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) invites credit unions around the world to share photos of their members in action for its first annual photo contest. The five winning photos will be showcased in a beautiful gallery setting at the 2008 World Credit Union Conference in Hong Kong.

By sharing photos of credit union members in action–working, doing business at the credit union or simply spending time with their families–contestants can offer a glimpse into a world many people may not be able to see.

WOCCU publications will use photos entered in the contest.

Through a photo we can meet a Bolivian family who started a business making and selling hats at their local market. A loan from their credit union made it possible to purchase more supplies and sell more hats.

All photos entered in the contest are eligible to be featured in various WOCCU publications such as its website, annual report, Credit Union World magazine and brochures.

Contestants must submit a caption with each photo stating who is in the picture, the credit union members’ story, where and when the photo was taken. Send only high resolution digital images or developed hard copies please. Photos must be a true representation of its contents, an original work and not altered in any way.

Contest photos must be submitted no later than December 1, 2007, with the photographer’s name, organization, address, phone number and email.

Please contact Lindsay Seabrook at lseabrook@woccu.org or (608) 395-2014 with questions or to submit a digital photo for the contest. You can also mail hard copies to:
