We are happy to announce the results of the fourth edition of the photography competition organized by ReAct Asia Pacific and ASPIC Clubs in commemorating World Antimicrobial Awareness Week. It has been a great edition and we thank all the participants for sending in their entries.
Themes this year reflects realities of COVID-19
This year’s competition had three themes, which reflects the changing realities in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The outbreak and the subsequent restrictions have adversely affected the wellbeing of people in countless different ways and the effects may be around for a long time. Therefore, we decided to broaden the scope of the competition and zeroed in on the following themes:
1. Quality of health care
2. Planetary health
3. Health and hygiene
The entries were evaluated by the following experts:
- Satya Sivaraman, Communication Advisor, ReAct Asia Pacific
- Mr Nirmal George Koshy, Programme Head for all Radio Mirchi stations in Kerala, India
“The photo competition is about the visualization of the problem of antimicrobial resistance and capturing in simple but powerful images what words find difficult to explain. It is a very important tool in taking up the challenge of inspiring people to think about the issue”
says, Satya Sivaraman, Communication Advisor, ReAct Asia Pacific
