USAID’s Center for Digital Development invites applications for the Digital Agriculture Photo Contest for your chance to win prizes of $200, $300 and $500 dollars.

Digital Development for Feed the Future is a collaboration between The U.S. Global Development Lab (Lab) and the Bureau for Food Security (BFS). Launched in September 2015, this three-year partnership is aimed at integrating digital tools into the Feed the Future portfolio.

With digital technology making it possible to accelerate the fight against poverty, USAID’s Center for Digital Development works to ensure that everyone, even the poorest, has access to digital services. The Center also supports the effective use of technology and advanced data analytics across USAID and explores emerging technologies to better understand how they will shape the future of development. To learn more about their work, follow them on Twitter and sign up for our newsletter.

Digital Development for Feed the Future (D2FTF) leverages digital tools holistically and according to best practice to improve the cost-effectiveness and development results of the U.S. Government’s Feed the Future Initiative. As part of their mission, they seek to recognize those who are utilizing digital tools to improve farming practices and accelerate the fight against poverty. Help them tell the story of digital agriculture technologies and how they’re working to advance food security and nutrition across the globe by joining the photo contest. Send in your best photos of digital agriculture technologies in action by April 16 for your chance to win prizes of $200, $300 and $500 dollars.
