Agrilinks Announces 2018 Photo Challenge

By Agrilinks

Do you have great photos depicting global agriculture and food security that you want to share with the development community? Agrilinks want to hear from you!

The Agrilinks 2018 Photo Challenge, open to all, is a great opportunity to share your work or that of your organization with the Agrilinks community of 15,000 food security and ag practitioners. 

Photos must depict any some aspect of Agrilinks' 11 main topic areas, which include climate and natural resources, agricultural productivity, and others.

Each entrant may submit up to 10 images complying with the contest requirements and rules (entries not adhering to them will be disqualified, so study them before submitting!). Entries will be judged on relevance to one or more Agrilinks topic areas, composition, originality and technical quality. One winner will be selected overall in addition to winners chosen for each topic area, through a combination of an Agrilinks judging panel to select finalists and a social media crowd vote to select winners. Winning photos will be announced in mid-January, subsequently featured in Agrilinks communications and highlighted on the website’s topic pages.

We’re especially looking for photos depicting resilience, policy and governance, and monitoring, evaluation and learning, so we’d love to see a good showing in these categories.

All entries should be submitted via this online submission form by December 20. For any questions or issues, contact the team at [email protected].

Climate adaptation can take many forms, ranging from disaster risk reduction to natural resources management, according to the Fifth Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
This blog is part of the Benefits of Climate Risk Management blog series that aims to provide evidence-based deep dives into USAID case studies. A USAID-funded Cambodia fisheries project outperformed productivity goals after incorporating climate-sensitive design, including planning for increased risk of drought and extreme heat events.
In December 2019, Typhoon Kammuri flooded parts of Legazpi City, one of the biggest natural hazard hotspots in the country. Earlier that year, USAID had helped the local water district develop an emergency preparedness plan for maintaining and restoring water services when disasters strike.
