#HopeInSight Photo Competition
The #HopeInSight Photo Competition, is the fifth photo competition organised for World Sight Day. The competition is open to Professional and Amateur photographers and is organised by The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).
Event History This competition started in 2015 and is held every year for World Sight Day. The competition has seen activity from all over the world.
What Makes this event different?
This event helps make a difference through photography by bringing about awareness of avoidable blindness and visual impairment.
After the immense success of our three successive photo competitions, the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) invites amateur and professional photographers from around the world to join us in celebrating the diversity of stakeholders and patients we reach. With support from Bayer Health Care, the theme for the international Photography Competition this year is ‘Hope In Sight’.
Theme We know that over a billion people have a vision impairment that could have been treated or addressed. Prevalence of vision impairment in many low- and middle-income regions is estimated to be four times higher than in high-income regions.
2020 has been a year of extraordinary changes because of the COVID-19 pandemic raging across the world. Most countries have prioritized COVID-19 control and every aspect of the country’s health system has a role to play.
Yet, there is hope in sight. There are many innovations and models that eye health, which can positively impact health. With the theme “Hope in Sight”, IAPB encourages you to share photos that highlight the impact, the strength of our partnerships and highlight the importance of vision everywhere in the world.
