Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has launched a photo contest 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 wishes to engage the general public in an international effort to improve nutrition, aided by images on the topic. Contestants are invited to submit photographs from around the world which illustrate the work of FAO and the importance of nutrition.

The contest will be judged 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.

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

The deadline to submit photos to the contest is 16 October. For more information, visit the FAO website.
