Syngenta has launched its 2010 Photo Prize competition to recognize and reward outstanding photography centred on the company purpose “Bringing plant potential to life.” Open to amateur and professional photographers, entries can be submitted between Jan. 10 and June 10, 2010. First, second and third prizes of $8,000, $5,000 and $3,000 respectively are sponsored by Canon.
The competition seeks outstanding images of plants, landscapes, communities and technologies in global agriculture. A website dedicated to the photo prize will feature the ongoing submissions and showcase winners and entries from previous years. An international jury will assess the entries. Judging criteria can be found at www.syngentaphoto.com.
A separate internal competition is also open to all Syngenta employees.
