WOCCU Announces 2007 Credit Union Photo Contest
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.
