From protecting sea turtles in Costa Rica, to caring for AIDS patients in Tanzania, to counseling women in Nepal, “volunteer vacations” are growing in popularity each year—and here’s a chance to win a free two-week volunteer trip abroad.

Nonprofit United Planet, which organizes volunteer abroad trips to more than 40 countries, is again sponsoring its United Planet Day Photo & Video Contest. Submit photos and/or videos that “illustrate the ideas of cross-cultural understanding, friendship, and supporting one another in your own community or abroad” and you’ll be in the running to win a volunteer trip to one of ten selected countries. It’s not necessary to have already done volunteer work abroad.

Email entries to contest@unitedplanet.org with the subject line “UP Day Contest [Your Name]. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 21, 11:59 pm EST. Voting will be opened to the public by the following week. Winners will be announced on or around September 22. More information and contest guidelines are at unitedplanet.org/united-planet-day-contest.
