SEARCA Photo Contest 2015
THEME: From Farm to Plate: Smallholders’ Participation in Inclusive Value Chains
WHAT TO CAPTURE: In Southeast Asia, where most of the population are still small farmers and fishers, there is a need to document and tell the stories of inclusive value chains—those that embrace the participation of smallholders into existing or new value chains—or letting smallholders extract greater value from the chain, either by increasing efficiency or by also carrying out activities further along the chain.
SEARCA PHOTO CONTEST 2015 will award entries that best capture how smallholders participate in the value chain (production, aggregation, processing, and distribution) of fresh produce (crop and livestock), commodities, and handicrafts as a means of promoting agricultural and rural development. We are looking for photographs that depict real situations in which the smallest producers are able to link to and profit from modern integrated markets (domestically, or even abroad). Send us photos of smallholders who have transformed themselves into entrepreneurs; photos that show how smallholder farming can be commercialized and become profitable; photos of contract farming as an instrument for inclusion and up-scaling. We would like to see photographs where smallholders ensure the quality of their products by applying good agricultural practices, using certified seed, adhering to quality standards, maintaining cold chains, and accessing information and communication technology. Finally, send us photos that show how smallholders ensure the sustainability of their farms by reducing their impact on the natural environment and increasing their farm’s resilience to climate change.
