The United Nations declared 2014 the International Year of Family Farming (IYFF) with the slogan “Feeding the World, Caring the Earth.”
To mark the IYFF and on occasion of the World International Youth Day, YPARD Nepal, in collaboration with AgriYouthNepal (AYN) and Nepal Agricultural Cooperative Central Federation Ltd. (NACCFL), announces “YPARD Nepal Family Farming Photo Contest.” A competition from all Nepalese citizens with the goal of giving a stronger voice to family farmers as well as the recognition they deserve for their key role in the construction of a food secured future.
In line with the IYFF objectives, photo entries from smallholders on agriculture, livestock production, food security, landscape management, youth and gender equality in family farming are highly encouraged. Pictures must transmit the strength, potential, contribution and challenges that family farmers meet in their daily lives. Each individual can submit up to 3 pictures to the contest. The photo contest begins on the 12th of August 2014 and ends on the 11th of November 2014. To participate in the photo contest, fill the registration form.
All the photo entries will undergo a panel judgement first and then the public will vote among the best 20 photos (25 November to 15 December). From top public choices, the first (NRs. 20,000), second (NRs. 10,000) and third places (NRS. 5,000) will be selected on the 20th of December 2014.
The winners will be awarded on the National Youth Forum on Agro-based Entrepreneurship Development (#NYFAED15) in January 2015, and will be published on NYFAED proceeding, YPARD, AYN, NACCFL and 2014 International Year of Family Farming websites.
