This top list of photography-influenced social businesses point to a larger lack in the social entrepreneurship realm: creative organizations, that is, creative arts, that put the literary or the art-focused at the core of their philosophy and working. All the same, the organizations featured here still recognize the value in a powerful image -- and sometimes simply for marketing purposes alone. What's what saying again? A picture is worth a thousand words?

From local multimedia messages to transparency treks, these photography-influenced social businesses have something to show. Some, like the marine conservation organization Blue Ventures, use imagery as a way to tell their story, but others, such as Community Film Unit, have imager production at the core of their practice.
