For 50 years, the International Fund for Animal Welfare has been working toward their goal of helping animals and people thrive together, through animal welfare initiatives all over the world. Raising awareness is a key part of their mission, and photography is one of the best ways to do just that. With images that show how much animal health and welfare matters, IFAW’s crucial message can travel even further. Read more about IFAW's mission here.
Whether it’s the animals who live in your neighborhood, the pets who you call family, or wildlife you encounter on a nature trip, this challenge is all about photographing the animals around you. Document natural habitats through photo or video, or get creative recording the daily life of your cat or dog.
