Theme: Productivity and Sustainable Development.

Photos must show scenes from everyday life reflecting either productivity, sustainable development, or both. Productivity means “improved or better ways of doing things,” while sustainable development means “progress with due regard for environmental protection.” This photo contest is intended to depict only positive aspects related to the theme. Therefore photos showing negative images such as violations of human and animal rights, abusive or destructive behavior, objectionable or offensive objects, social conflicts or war, and child labor will not be accepted.
