The top twenty photos, and also the winning photos of the photo competition Volunteers in action

have been chosen due to the fact that they managed to respond to the given topic from different

perspectives and in the same time showed various ways of perceiving volunteering in general.

All chosen photos had not only managed to show the voluntary action and document the activities such

as helping the children, cleaning green areas from waste, raising ecological consciousness or collecting

aid for the part of our planet that was in trouble, but they also evoked the specific atmosphere of volunteering,

collectivity and unity about a noble idea, and also showed great skills of the authors in using

technical abilities of the chosen media. Smile, caught environment, details from the behind or spontaneous

arm movement became the echoes of the original idea of voluntarism visible in these photos.

The winning photos have in common the subtle detachment from the concrete topic: Andrija Vrdoljak

managed to describe the extinguishing of fire in that way to remind us more of the oil on canvas

than of documented photography, Adeline Charnet was devoted to the details by which we

can only anticipate which activity and help could be presented, while Nemanja Šiljegović paid attention

to the serenity and content which come after work done for the benefit of the community.

Such illustrations, slightly removed from the direct representation of the action, speak much more in the

direction of what we should know about volunteers and volunteer acts: their aim is fulfilled only with good

feelings of all participants, enjoying the acting and smiles on the faces of both the helpers and those in trouble.
