Hi! 
Just wanted to let you guys know about a social media photo competition for individuals with spinal cord injury and other wheelchair users. Just take a photo of yourself doing something you enjoy, put it on social media for a chance to win $200 or a $50 giftcard :) It is run by March On Australia, an SCI nonprofit.

    Hi @JenD, as this is a UK-based charity and you are an Australian organisation, can you confirm whether or not this competition is open to our community members in the UK?

    The winning photo will be featured on our social media, and could possibly also be featured on our site (only if the winner gives permission). Hope this helps :)

    Hi @JenD

    Just noticed this post which looks an exciting opportunity. I am into photography as a visually impaired or registered blind person, but do not fit the criteria of having a spinal cord injury. I wish anyone who does go in for it good luck. Wondered if there is anyone else out there who is into photography in any way ??
