Animal health and welfare,
beyond the cliché

2019 Photo Competition is open!

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 to protect animal health and promote animal welfare through the implementation of
OIE International Standards.

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 prizes range from €800 to €1,500, depending on the category.

Become an artistic ambassador for animal health across the world.
