On 12 February the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) announced the launch of a photo contest to showcase how world trade is supporting economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The winner will be announced at the WTO Aid for Trade Stocktaking Event to be held online on 23 to 25 March.
All photos must be submitted by 03 March.
The contest is open to anyone over the age of 18. Submitted photos should show how trade is impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and how trade is helping to bring about economic recovery.
The photos will be judged by a panel consisting of WTO and EIF staff and a professional photographer, with the winner announced at the WTO Aid for Trade Stocktaking event to be held online on 23 to 25 March.
The winning photo will be showcased at the event. It will also be given global visibility across WTO and EIF digital and social media channels with the appropriate credit.
The Aid for Trade Stocktaking Event will look into the impact of COVID-19 on world trade and will seek to mobilise Aid for Trade financing to support economic recovery and foster resilience. The event will also examine the trade needs of developing and least-developed countries in the face of the pandemic.
