Become an Ambassador

Are you a photographer? Do you believe that photography can be a tool for social change?

Lensational is looking for photographers who share our vision, are keen to promote our joint ambitions in their networks, and who would like to use their skills to help empower women worldwide.

Lensational Ambassador play a key role in helping grow and develop our programmes in new locations across the globe. Since launch of the Ambassador Programme in October 2015, we have worked with three professional photographers who have taken our model to Cambodia and Thailand.

How are Ambassadors supporting Lensational?

  • Promotion of Lensational and its vision in your network
  • Supporting local programme managers in setting up a new programme, or in developing further an existing programme, with your expertise, network, and professional photography skills
  • Liaising with local partners (NGOs and companies) which can help us connect with women who want to be part of a Lensational programme
  • Facilitating our photography workshops, and teaching women how to find their voice through photography
  • Identifying and meeting potential volunteers who can carry on the training programme (for example in case you leave the location)
  • Tracking the impact of the programme with Lensational’s monitoring and evaluation tool kit, to ensure our programmes remain effective and inspiring

Why should you become an Ambassador?

As a Lensational Ambassador you can play a crucial role in the expansion of Lensational’s mission and outreach, to help empower women economically and emotionally through photography. We need your expertise, engagement and enthusiasm to continue Lensational’s success.

Lensational provides its Ambassadors with photography teaching materials, leadership training, and support tailored to your workshop location’s specific needs. For examples, we help with contacting local NGO partners, and provide guidance on local gender issues.

You will join a growing network of professional photographers across the globe supporting the empowerment of women, and you will have access to Lensational’s vast network of volunteers and partners in 18 countries.
