We want to bring our craft and vision together into extraordinary technique. But technique is not an end in itself. We’re on a journey to exhibit the beauty and dignity of people in our images.
We are committed to displaying common humanity and images that build bridges of peace. We hope you can learn from our example, from one another, and we in turn will draw inspiration from the entire visual peacemaking movement.
Part of our desire is to see visual communication industries and media saturated with visual peacemakers like yourself who know how to use their vision, their craft, and their BIG hearts for the good of our world!

The IGVP Founders acknowledge that many exemplary visual communicators may request entrance into the Guild. Therefore, we want to say openly now that we’re keeping the Guild small, mainly for logistical and strategic reasons. In addition to the criteria below, tell us why you think you should hold a seat in the Guild. There is a Memorandum of Understanding for Guild members that details minimum commitments. However, we’re looking for those who would go beyond minimums and instead strive for bold, generous, and innovative.
