Deadline: 15 January 2021

Whether you’re a professional or an amateur, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is calling for your support to photograph healthy and unhealthy plants. You can win a trip to a plant health event or a photo mission. Winning photos will be showcased online and exhibited at FAO headquarters and at events around the world.

You can submit photos to the following categories:

1. Unhealthy plants
We want you to send us photographs of pests attacking plants in your area, or to show us the damage being caused. Pests are defined as any species, strain or type of plant, animal or pathogen that damage plants or plant products. They include insects, virus, bacteria, nematodes and invasive plants.

2. Healthy Plants – Custodians of our air, food and environment
Send us photographs that capture the natural beauty of plants and reflect their importance as the source of the air we breathe, our food and as protectors of our environment.


Take a photo and submit it with a short description.
Two winners in each category will be selected by our jury and announced in July 2020.

The Contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers, who have reached the age of 18 at the time of entering the contest and upon acceptance of terms and conditions.
