Submit your photos and videos to help end malaria
Do you have photos or videos that tell moving stories of people working to help end malaria? If so, submit them to the just-launched ‘End Malaria Photo and Video Contest’ hosted by the Swiss Malaria Group (SMG) to raise awareness of malaria and what can be done to help defeat it.
With the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development firmly in place, this contest seeks images that tell stories of how defeating malaria will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. Images are sought that fit into one of three categories on this theme: innovate together, care together for a better world. There is also a fourth and final category for videos that depict the path towards a world without malaria. See below for more details
Participate from now until Wednesday the 1st of March 2017 and you could be in with a chance of winning prize money from a total sum of CHF 10’000. Participants are asked to ensure they have consent from those depicted in the photos they submit.
Have your say on the best pictures via the SMG website. The winners will be selected via the public vote together with an expert panel of judges and will be announced on Wednesday the 15th of March.
