Would you like to be part of something amazing?
We are on the hunt for talented photographers to contribute to our stunning photo book project, which celebrates both individuals with Down syndrome and their families, Australia wide.
We are Celebrate T21 - a social enterprise based in the Illawarra, running a community service with a simple goal: to educate, empower and advocate for families receiving a prenatal or postnatal diagnosis of Down syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21 (T21).
This will be the fourth in our series of photo books, which are gifted to newly diagnosed families as part of our work to provide support and share the inspirational stories of people living with Down syndrome.
We dream of a world where no family should feel isolated, unsupported or pressured to terminate based on a Down syndrome diagnosis.
We rely on volunteer contributions from photographers around the country to make these books possible. Not only will you be helping a very special cause, but you’ll also benefit from the exposure provided through promotion in the book and throughout our extensive Celebrate T21 network.
