We are busy producing Hostelling International’s Annual Report for 2011 and we would love our customers and staff from all over the globe to be a part of it. On the front cover we want an image of YOU! But don’t worry you won’t be alone! There will pictures of some of us who work at the International Office, some of the staff who work in HI hostels and National Associations worldwide, and most importantly our happy hostellers.

We distribute the Annual Report all over the world and we’ll develop an online version too. We have 4,000 hostels and over 70 National Associations worldwide so you will be seen by thousands of other people! If this sounds like a fun thing to be a part of please send us your photo as below:
