This is The Salvation Army

What do you think of this picture?

You might remember when we blogged about The Salvation Army’s All the World Magazine photo contest back in July. Salvation Army Editor Kevin Sims’ of International Headquarters in London initiated the project in an attempt to find the best depiction of The Salvation Army in a single area of the world.

Of 370 submissions, this photo of members of The Salvation Army in Pakistan won the contest. The twist? Photographer Keri Shay is an American who currently lives in Korea! How’s that for representing the internationality of The Salvation Army? We think that pretty much sums up the organization: an international movement motivated by the love of God to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

“We loved the dynamism in the picture, along with the aspect of the unexpected. Take the Army flag away and it could appear to be something completely different”, said Kevin Sims.

Congratulations to Keri, originally of the USA’s Central Territory who, along with freelance photography, currently teaches in Seoul, Korea.

Click here to see the top five photos! These among many other entries will be featured in the October-December issue of All the World.
