SCI Agri-Food Early Career Committee is set to accept applications for its “AgriFood Photo Competition 2021”. This is the fourth time they have launched this contest which gives early-career scientists an opportunity to share photographs representing their work. The theme of this year 2021 Twitter Photo Competition is ‘My hope for a sustainable future.’ All participants are required to share a picture of their agrifood work and describe to the judges why and how it gives them hope for a sustainable future.

The winner of this year’s competition will take home a $100 Amazon voucher along with one year’s student membership to SCI as well as a certificate. To get nominated for this program, what you need to do is to click the best photos of your work and tweet them with a caption explaining why it gives you hope for a sustainable future. Entries should involve #agrifoodbecause and tag the SCI Agri-Food Early Careers Committee Twitter handle @SCI_AgriFood. Applicants will get the chance to have their work judged by an expert panel. Photos might include anything related to agriscience, plants, pollinators, food, pests, environment, and agriculture.
