Animal health and welfare, beyond the cliché Photo Competition by OIE

Animal health and welfare, beyond the cliché Photo Competition by OIE

Opening: February 15, 2019
Deadline: April 15, 2019
Entry fee: Free
Prizes: €800, €1,500

Clichés about animal health and welfare and the veterinary profession are numerous in the collective consciousness, and photos depicting the topic often do not capture the reality of the related activities on the ground.

It is for this reason that the OIE created an annual photo competition to highlight the work carried out by animal health and welfare actors across the world.

The goal of this competition is to visually and creatively show the colossal work carried out by Veterinary Services as they implement OIE International Standards to protect the health and welfare of animals. The competition also aims to highlight the crucial link between animal health and animal welfare and to emphasise how improving them also enables us to protect human and ecosystem health.

The competition is open to members of the OIE global network, including practising veterinarians, and to veterinary students currently studying in one of the OIE’s 182 Member Countries.

The jury, which this year is composed of professional veterinary photographers, will be looking in particular for creative photos that reflect the human/animal interactions that typify the activities of animal health and welfare professionals.

Themes

  • Animal disease surveillance, prevention and control
    Photos could depict surveillance activities, vaccination campaigns, prophylaxis, and diagnostic tests, including interaction between wildlife (birds, rodents, etc), environment and livestock.
  • Animal welfare
    Photos could illustrate transport of animals, stray dog management, working animals, and other topics addressed in the OIE welfare standards’ chapters.
  • Animal production systems
    Photos could demonstrate familial, extensive or intensive farming systems, as well as transhumance, pastoralism systems, etc, with when possible a special spotlight on sustainable practices.
  • Aquatic animal health and production systems
    Photos could show farmed fishing systems, amphibians, crustaceans, farmed fish, molluscs and their products.
  • One Health
    Photos could depict the essential link between human and animal health and the ecosystem in which they co-exist.
  • Veterinary education
    Photos could illustrate young students in practice/ training, veterinary education establishments and facilities etc.
