2024 People of Action Image & Video Competition

Zones 33/34 are committed to making sure that members and clubs are not only informed by the various social media channels, but also, that they feel a sense of investment, ownership and pride and are motivated to explore content from these channels for themselves and share content with a wider audience. 

At Zones 33/34, fostering engagement and pride among our members is key.

In the first half of the 2023-2024 Rotary year, we launched our inaugural Social Media Cover Art Competition. Now in the second half of the Rotary year, Zones 33/34 announces its 2024 People of Action Image & Video Competition.

Rotary and Rotaract members from Zones 33/34 are invited to create and submit original designs or videos reflecting our Zones, our members, our story, and our impact through the work of clubs and members.

Submissions to the competition can either be a static image (e.g. PNG), an animated image (e.g. GIF) or a short video (e.g. MP4) where all entries must follow Rotary International’s People of Action brand guidelines.

Qualifying entries will be shared on Zones 33/34 social media and winners will be selected based on number of likes, as well as, on an evaluation by the Rotary Zones 33/34 Social Media Team. Announcements will be made in May 2024 and winners will receive a certificate from Zones 33/34 and some surprise rewards…not to mention major bragging rights!
