NCVO members’ photo competition

NCVO photography competition winners 2019 

Looking to the future

As part of NCVO’s centenary year, we are reflecting on the achievements of voluntary action and looking ahead to the future. In times of transition and change, charities must adapt fast and be prepared to step in when required. This year’s ‘looking to the future’ theme is an opportunity to show how charities and the voluntary sector remain resilient and innovative in times of great change. The winners of the photography competition where announced at NCVO’s annual conference.

The Winner
