Syngenta Photography Award 2014: Scarcity-Waste

Syngenta has recently opened its second (2014) Photography Award competition “Scarcity-Waste”, inviting photographers from all over the world to explore the tensions and relationships between scarcity and waste through compelling imagery.

The 2014 Syngenta Photography Award has two competition categories and a prize fund worth a total of US$65,000!

Through compelling imagery, Syngenta aims to draw attention and stimulate dialogue around key global challenges.

The theme of the second Award is “Scarcity-Waste”. It draws attention to arguably the greatest challenge the world faces: how can we ensure there is enough land, food and water for future generations? The resources we use and the waste we create today means we already need the equivalent of one and a half planets.

The two competition categories are:

  • Professional Commission and
  • Open Competition

Images from the Award will be exhibited in March 2015 at Somerset House, one of London’s most celebrated arts and culture venues.

The Syngenta Photography Award is designed for both professional and amateur photographers.
