2012 Asian Productivity Organization
The APO Photo Contest 2012 is organized by the Asian Productivity Organization Secretariat, Hirakawa-cho Daiichi Seimei Building, 1-2-10 Hirakawa-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 102-0093, Japan. It is held every two years only.
The theme of the 2012 APO Photo Contest is Productivity and Sustainable Development. Photos must show scenes from everyday life reflecting either productivity, sustainable development, or both. Productivity means “improved or better ways of doing things,” while sustainable development means “progress with due regard for environmental protection.”
The 2012 contest will have two categories: 1) agriculture and 2) industry. Each of the two categories will have a gold, silver, and bronze prize winner. Five merit prizes will be selected from either category. A Grand Prize will be given to the photo that best combines all the technical elements of photography and creatively interprets the theme while reflecting both categories of agriculture and industry in one image.
The contest is open to all who are nationals of APO member economies, which include Bangladesh, Cambodia, Republic of China, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam.
