The Glimpse Foundation has launched its third annual Spring Photo Contest, "It's All in the Family," open to anyone who has traveled or lived abroad. The contest seeks photos that depict family life in countries other than the U.S.

The photo submission deadline is May 22. One grand prize winner will receive a $500 travel voucher. A total of 12 winning entries will be included in the 2007 Glimpse calendar, to be distributed to bookstores across the U.S. Contest guidelines are posted online at

Previous contests include 2005's "A Day's Rest," providing a look at people enjoying leisure time in countries around the globe, and 2004's "A Day's Work," presenting images of work routines around the world. Images from these and other contests are posted online.

The Glimpse Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 2001 by Brown University students with seed funds from the National Geographic Society. The organization's mission is to foster cross-cultural understanding and exchange, particularly between the United States and the rest of the world.
