APNI Photo Contest 2023
Applications for the African Plant Nutrition Institute (APNI) Photo Contest 2023 are now open. Join this challenge to shine a light on plant nutrition research and development across Africa through photography. Your contributions will help to build a valuable forum and educational resource, plus you could win a cash prize!
This year, the contest is built around two categories:
- Category 1: Nutrient Deficiency Symptoms in Crops: Have you spotted a nutrient deficiency symptom in a crop? It’s a perfect opportunity to take a moment to capture it for the contest. APNI is looking for well-framed examples that they can publish with full credit to the photographer.
- Category 2: Plant Nutrition Research in Action: As a practitioner of the agricultural sciences, you often have the opportunity to be involved or observe the implementation and development of improved plant nutrition practices. They are looking forward to receiving your vivid images of African research in action as well as the results of impactful research on crop productivity, environmental protection, and the local community. They have chosen three themes to tag submissions under this category with:
- Climate & Weather Smart Plant Nutrition
- Soil Health & Improved Livelihoods
- Precision Nutrient Management.
- Winners in each category will receive the cash award plus a certificate of acknowledgement.
- All photos must be from within Africa.
- Photos must be at least 1 MB in size to submit.
- Up to five (5) photos will be accepted per person.
- High-resolution, high-quality photos. The file size should be at least 1 MB.
- Uncompressed photos are preferred.
- Accepted formats: high-quality JPG, JPEG, or PNG.
- No submissions with a logo or time stamp visible on the photo will be accepted.
- Photos must include a unique caption, which includes a description of the photo’s subject, the location in which it was taken, when it was taken (month and year if possible), and how it is related to the contest category.
- Nutrient deficiency images should be supported by a short description of the symptoms. If you have any background on how the crop was managed, or any analytical data, include that in your description for the benefit of others, and to help the evaluation.
