NikonPhotography contest sponsored by Nikon : By sponsoring a worldwide photography contest for professionals and amateurs, Nikon Europe announces its backing of the United Nations International Year of the Potato 2008. Food prices are soaring worldwide, driven by fierce competition for reduced international supplies of wheat, maize and rice, and other agricultural commodities. As major concern grows over the risk of food shortages and instability in dozens of low-income countries, global attention is turning to an age-old crop that can in some cases help ease the strain of food price inflation: the potato. Closing date for the worldwide photography contest is 1 September 2008.

International Year of the Potato
Mr. Shivaji Pandey, Director of FAO’s Plant Production and Protection Division says: “Since the potato is not a globally-traded commodity, prices are usually determined by local production costs, not the vagaries of international markets. As such, it is a highly recommended food security crop that can help low-income farmers and vulnerable consumers ride out the turmoil in world food supply and demand, as well as reduce the risk of malnutrition and hunger, poverty, water scarcity and climate change.”

World Photography Contest on potato
Nikon is pleased to support the International Year by sponsoring the IYP World Photography Contest on potato, “Focus on a global food”, (for amateur and professional photographers). Martina Beckmann, Manager Communications and Marketing Services at Nikon Europe B.V.: “Pictures speak louder than words. We are delighted to contribute to raising the awareness for this important issue, which in turn will contribute to achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. As in our sponsorship of the Year of Rice Photo Contest in 2004, we look forward to receiving the same level of powerful images.”

Photo Contest

Participants in the contests are invited to submit photographs that reflect the potato's key role in agriculture, the economy and world food security, offer new insights into potato biodiversity, cultivation, processing, trade, marketing and consumption, and / or help contribute to a free and international exchange of information on this globally-important food crop. There are three attractive sets of Nikon equipment available as prizes for each category.
