About our Phoenix Photography Challenges with Heart

(Please note: This challenge is for the students of Phoenix P-12 connect program only)

Never before has our world been so saturated with images. Everyone has access to a camera, whether it’s on their phone, a point & shoot, or a DSLR. This time round we partnered with the students of Phoenix P-12 Community College in Ballarat for our Photography Challenges with Heart & asked them to create image that will help raise awareness of The YMCA ReCranked Program

If you’d like to help the students raise awareness, and prove creativity can help make the world a better place, please like, share to social media, or take a moment to donate via the box on the left hand side. Even a dollar helps!

Watch the video above for this month’s brief, start shooting and join us to shoot for change!

Start Date:  01 May 2017

End Date:  02 July 2017

About the Organisation you are supporting: The YMCA ReCranked Program

The YMCA Bike recycle program collects donations of old bikes, does them up and gives them away to kids in need. They have a team of volunteers at the workshop, so they can also help you build your own bike (for FREE!) if you want to take part in the process and have your very own custom ride.

Local impact

The bike recycle program is also always in need of bikes! So if you have a bike (or part of a bike) lying around, drop it off at the workshop –

The YMCA ReCranked Centre, located at the back of the YMCA Wendouree West Youth Centre, receives donations of unwanted bikes and also welcomes volunteers who would like to donate their skills to help support the program.  

The workshop is open from 2 to 5pm Monday and Friday during school terms. Please call (03) 4333 6400, 0417 313 898 or email ballarat.recranked@ymca.org.au for more information.

WATERMARKED IMAGES WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE. This challenge is all about giving – the images may be used by the community organisation with credit to you, but without a watermark. It’s all about helping grassroots organisations to promote themselves with awesome images that they could never afford to pay for. Thanks for using your creativity to make a difference!
