(Geneva/WSBERO) – It is a wide spread phenomenon in Scouting and almost as old as the Scout Movement itself: nearly every day and in all corners of Europe you will come across a local Scout Group running a typical Scouting activity. But seldom are the Scouts and their actions captured on images. And when pictures are taken, they are unlikely to be shared beyond the particular Section, Unit or Group concerned.
But we all know: “An image says more than a thousand words”. And this is of course true for the Scout Movement as well. It is so much easier to explain the manifold aspects of Scouting with showing ‘telling’ illustrations.
Enough reasons for the European Scout Region to launch its #MyBestScoutPhoto contest. A number of reports are due to be presented at the upcoming 21st European Scout Conference. And rather than telling their story with thousands of words, the European Scout Committee would like to use images reflecting the broad range of activities run in the European Region over the past three years.
So, check your personal image archive and the image database of your local Group, your district or National Scout Association. Send in your best photos for the #MyBestScoutPhoto contest and hope to see them illustrate the Region’s report. A selection of images will also be exhibited at the 21st European Scout Conference. And a nice prize awaits the author of the BestScoutPhoto!
