IAPB, with support from Bayer, is back with its fifth online photo competition on the theme “Vision First!” ending on World Sight Day (10 October 2019).
Prizes include a DSLR camera and a cash prize! Find out more at http://photocomp.iapb.org (Do use the hashtag #VisionFirst!)
We know now that 1.2 billion people don’t have access to glasses. Over 3 out of 4–more than 75%–of the world’s vision impaired are avoidably so. The photo competition is a great tool to draw a spotlight on eye care issues across the globe and those who are vulnerable to sight conditions—young children, persons with diabetes, older people, people with limited access to health services etc. With the theme, “#VisionFirst!”, IAPB encourages you to share images that highlight the impact, and strength of our partnerships and most importantly highlight the importance of vision everywhere in the world.
