The OIE will be holding its annual photo competition from 1 February to 15 April 2018.
The organisation has given prominence to its major mission of improving animal health and welfare in the photo competition, whose aim is to visually and creatively show the crucial importance of the work done to protect animal health and welfare worldwide through the implementation of OIE International Standards. The competition also seeks to highlight the crucial link between animal health and welfare as well as the significance of these latter elements to face the challenges of the future, and preserve human health and ecosystems.
The winning photos of the 2018 OIE PHOTO COMPETITION will therefore be those that best illustrate, both from an artistic and a descriptive point of view, the work carried out by animal health and welfare players. The jury will especially consider photos depicting the work of public and private Veterinary services in protecting animal health and promoting animal welfare worldwide in the context of the OIE Standards’ implementation, thus ensuring public health.
