A picture paints a thousand words
A joy-filled photo taken during this year’s Easter service at Auburn Corps has been nominated for the Australian Life Photography competition. Freelance photographer Adam Hollingworth took the shot earlier this year, but his relationship with The Salvation Army goes back much farther.
“I was touched by The Salvation Army years ago when they helped my late father who experienced mental illness, alcoholism and homelessness,” he said “Now I’ve worked with the Salvos [as a freelancer] for years, taking photos for the Red Shield Appeal and TV campaigns. I’m a big believer in the work the Army does.”
Adam is proud of his nominated photo, ‘Auburn Salvation Army, Corps Easter 2021’, and says it displays real joy. “It’s a really remarkable gorgeous summation of diaspora that makes modern Australia. There are so many nationalities represented in that corps,” he said. Vote for Adam's photo here.

Have you got any idea?
The Salvation Army’s co-founder William Booth was known as an innovator, and The Salvation Army is, in turn, intrinsically innovative.
Do you have ideas for your local corps or community that could have national potential? Tell us about them! We want to hear your ideas of bringing something new to the Army to help fund its important mission services.
The Salvation Army IDEAS platform is where ideas from people inside and outside the Army come together to bring about innovative ways to increase the reach of services within our communities. Visit the IDEAS platform to submit your ideas and vote and comment on ideas that you think have the potential to make a difference.
