Share Your Favorite Pics: FY21 Annual Report Cover Photo Contest

It’s that time again! We invite member organizations of The Corps Network to share some of your favorite pictures from 2021 to be considered for the cover of The Corps Network FY21 annual report. We are looking for powerful images that demonstrate the resilience, diversity, and impact of the contemporary Corps movement. Right now, as our country considers establishing a national Civilian Climate Corps initiative, show us what “a modern CCC” looks like. Please see below for specific criteria.

Even if your Corps’ photo doesn’t make the cover, please note that almost every photo submission we receive will be used elsewhere in the report or in other documents and resources produced by The Corps Network in the future. We sincerely appreciate all of the content we’ve received in past cover photo contests.

The last day to submit photos is Friday, February 18, 2022. The report will be published in March. Thank you for your consideration.
