Photographs are one way to tell about something beautiful. A photograph demands that the audience commit to get to know the origin story, the boundaries of its meaning, and the power behind its voice. The Share Your Veganism: 2020 Photo Essay Contest showcases, through the beauty of artistic expression in a photograph, those things that empower how we choose to nourish our bodies.
Please Read Carefully
Closing Date: Entries should be submitted by September 18, 2020, 11:59 PM EST.
No purchase is necessary for entry in the contest.
Food There are many ways to embrace vegan living. Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude all animal products, and as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. You’ll find that the one thing in common among vegans is an entirely plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods such as meat (including seafood and insects), eggs, dairy, honey and gelatin. How do you connect spreading your message and the benefits of a vegan diet through food? How are you turning adversaries into allies to reshape our food system?
Activism: Environment, Animal Rights/Welfare Mother Earth is abundant and provides us with all that we need, as long as we protect her and live in harmony with her. It is our collective responsibility.
Lifestyle How do you connect spreading your message through lifestyle choices?
