Preamble: Not surprisingly, Little Travellers love to travel! Whether they are going on a picnic at the lake or on a jaunt across the ocean, Little Travellers relish in the joys of meeting new people and seeing new sites. In fact, their global gallivanting has inspired us to hold the first ever Little Travellers Photo Contest!

The concept is simple: take photos of your Little Traveller(s) (on their own please!) anywhere in the world, and submit them (see below) to help document the epic journeys of these peripatetic harbingers of hope! These photos will be shared on our website, and the best of them will be featured in a photographic exhibit (entitled "Little Travellers: where they have come from, where they have been, and where they are going") alongside photos taken by the crafters who made the Little Travellers in South Africa!


All prizes have been made at the Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust, as part of the Woza Moya income-generation project. Pictures are included for reference, but because these are all one-of-a-kind handmade crafts, the prizes received may not be identical to those pictured.
