2015 EUDev Days Our Future is on the Table Youth Photo Contest (Win an all expense paid trip to Brussels to attend European Development Days)

Submission Deadline: April 10 2015

Would you like the chance to share your vision of our future with world leaders in Brussels? The six talented finalists of the EDD15 Photo Contest will be invited to attend Europe’s largest development forum, European Development Days 2015 on 3 & 4 June where their photos will be exhibited and they will have the opportunity to meet key actors in development and share their ideas for our future!

Theme of the competition
Each year, the production of food contributes to various strains on the environment, including water shortages, deforestation, loss of biodiversity and pollution. Small farmers are losing their lands and livelihoods to large-scale farming,and soaring food prices in recent years have posed additional threats to food security. Currently, there are still 870 million people who do not have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food. Last but not least, food plays a central role in family,social and religious life, shaping people’s identity and culture.
What is your vision of how food will affect our future?
This year, the European Development Days invites you to have your say on these pressing issues. By participating in the OUR FUTURE IS ON THE TABLE Photo Contest, you can show Europe how what we eat affects the world we live in with an original photo and caption. One winning photo per continent will be selected and the six finalists will get to share their thoughts with leaders from around the world at the 2015 edition of European Development Days in Brussels.
