To celebrate Earth Day this year, USAID is hosting a photo contest to showcase the ways we are working to conserve the environment and mitigate climate change.
The contest is open to all, including USAID employees and interns; employees of NGOs and contractors; and representatives from universities, foundations and other organizations that partner with the Agency.
The deadline for photos is midnight, April 16, 2012.
Winning photos must:
- Illustrate why and how USAID is engaged in the specific environmental project. Photos of people, animals, plants and landscapes that are relevant to programs are all eligible.
- Include the date and location for the photograph as well as a brief description of what is happening in the image.
- Be at least 300 dpi or larger (low resolution photos will not be considered).
- Be in color (black and white photos will not be considered).
- Submitted digitally, with jpg files preferred.
Each photographer can submit up to five images. Contest photos should not have been previously submitted to USAID for another purpose. Also, note that submitting a photo through this contest grants USAID full reproduction rights to the images, including use in official USAID print and online publications and inclusion in the USAID photo gallery.
Photos will be selected and announced in time for Earth Day. See last year’s winning photos here.
