Home/Youth Speak/Opportunities/Apply for the Syngenta 2016 Photography Award – Up to $65,000 in Prizes!

The Syngenta Photography Award is an international competition that seeks to stimulate dialogue around key global challenges through powerful photography. This year’s theme is Grow-Conserve. As the world’s population continues to increase, so does the tension between our growing demand for more food, energy and resources, and the protection of our planet. How can we manage economic, social and technological growth in a way that supports the needs of today as well as for future generations? Bold and transformative action is needed.

Through compelling imagery, the Syngenta Photography Award aims to draw attention and stimulate dialogue around key global challenges. The award offers photographers an international platform for their work and also provides the opportunity to explore issues of global significance.
