ICN2 Photo Contest - 15 September to 16 October 2014

The problems of malnutrition—undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies and obesity—exist in all countries, developed and developing, and across all socio-economic classes. By launching this photo contest, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) aims to raise awareness about the importance of nutrition, emphasizing that it starts with what we eat: the products of the food and agriculture sector. FAO also wishes to engage the general public in an international effort to improve nutrition.

As the United Nations premier agency working on food and agriculture, FAO leads the effort to eliminate hunger and to ensure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. The images on the topic of nutrition, sent by participants from around the world, will help illustrate the importance of this key thematic area of FAO’s work.
Jury and prizes

The jury of the contest will be formed by FAO staff with the support of National Geographic.

The best three images will be awarded with prizes consisting of assignments with FAO for a photographic mission to an FAO project or office close to the residence of the awardee.

The best images will be featured in FAO communication materials and social media channels.
