The Peace Corps Media Library accepts photo and video submissions of Peace Corps life and service to help us share the rich experiences of Volunteers, their host communities, returned Volunteers, and Volunteer friends and family.

If your file size is larger than 100MB or you are experiencing difficulties submitting your materials, please email [email protected] to notify the system administrator.
Trying to decide what photos and videos to share from your collection? Here are some suggestions and guidelines for what to submit.
- Submit photos and video that tell a story—about a project, home life, cultural immersion, etc.
- Consider selecting a representative set of photos rather than focusing on one subject or one type of shot (landscapes, portraits).
- Submit photos of daily life, work-related activities, food and transportation, cultural celebrations, etc.
- Did you return to your host country years (or decades!) after completing your service? Photos of RPCVs reconnecting with host country friends and colleagues are especially welcome.
- Use the designated space in the submission form to describe the photo as completely as you can; only you can provide the context of the photo and the details that will bring it to life.
- Be sensitive to the privacy concerns of individuals, including host country nationals.
- Do not include personal identifying information such as Social Security numbers, phone numbers, email or street addresses.
Please note that we can only accept your photos if you are the copyright holder. Generally speaking, if you took the photo, or if you are the subject of the photo and it was taken using your camera, the copyright would belong to you unless you have assigned the copyright to a third party, such as a book publisher.
