Celebrate the International Day for Biological Diversity with us by submitting a photo and accompanying story to our Women and Agricultural Biodiversity Photo Contest.
Women and agricultural biodiversity are closely linked. Every day, women grow, harvest, cook, buy or sell a diversity of food and agricultural products to sustain their families, contributing to the conservation of agricultural biodiversity while feeding the world.
Share with us a story of a woman (or women) who is contributing to agricultural biodiversity in some way. Take a photo of her cooking a traditional dish, selling food at the market, harvesting wild herbs or growing vegetables on a farm. Tell us why these actions are special and get featured on Bioversity International’s social media channels. Photos with the most votes will have the chance to win a fantastic Digital SLR photo camera!
Read the full instructions and submit your photo by July 22, 2015 and don’t forget to vote for your favorite picture on Bioversity International's Facebook page.
And that’s not all. Want to know more about agricultural biodiversity, value chains and women empowerment? You are all invited to an event organized by Bioversity International and partners for EXPO Milano 2015 at Palazzo Castiglioni on September 17, 2015. Come and meet development cooperation experts, join the discussion on how to support women as key players in production and food systems, and hear stories and experiences from women custodian farmers coming from Asia, Africa and Latin America.
