Photography Submissions

Photography can have a lasting impact and tell a story that words alone cannot. Greater Seattle Cares would like to include photography that depicts life in an encampment or homeless-centered news and events within the Greater Seattle area. Your contributions of quality photos is much appreciated. If you have any questions about the submission process please feel free to contact us.

Before posting images GSC will review submissions to ensure they are appropriate and don’t contain anything that may be interpreted as sensitive.
