African Plant Nutrition Institute (APNI) Photo Contest 2023


Application Deadline:  1 July 2023

Join the APNI challenge to shine a light on plant nutrition research and development across Africa through photography. Your contributions will help to build a valuable forum and educational resource …plus you could win a cash prize!  The contest will be accepting entries till July 2023, after which we will announce the winning entries. This year the contest is built around two categories: 

Category 1: Nutrient Deficiency Symptoms in Crops 

Have you spotted a nutrient deficiency symptom in a crop? It’s a perfect opportunity to take a moment to capture it for our contest. We are looking for well-framed examples that we can publish with full credit to the photographer.

Category 2: Plant Nutrition Research in Action 

As a practitioner of the agricultural sciences, you often have the opportunity to be involved or observe the implementation and development of improved plant nutrition practices. APNI is looking forward to receiving your vivid images of African research in action as well as the results of impactful research on crop productivity, environmental protection, and the local community. We’ve chosen three themes to tag submissions under this category with: 1) Climate & Weather Smart Plant Nutrition, 2) Soil Health & Improved Livelihoods, or 3) Precision Nutrient Management. 


  1. Submit photos via this online submission form by the published deadline.
  2. All photos must be from within Africa
  3. Photos must be at least 1 MB in size to submit.
  4. Up to five (5) photos will be accepted per person.
  5. Winners in each category will receive the cash award plus a certificate of acknowledgement.

Submission Requirements:

High-resolution, high-quality photos. The file size should be at least 1 MB. Uncompressed photos are preferred. Accepted formats: high-quality JPG, JPEG, or PNG.

Photo Descriptions

Photos must include a unique caption, which includes a description of the photo’s subject, the location in which it was taken, when it was taken (month and year if possible), and how it is related to the contest category.

Nutrient deficiency images should be supported by a short description of the symptoms. If you have any background on how the crop was managed, or any analytical data, please include that in your description for the benefit of others, and to help our evaluation.
