To mark the 2014 International Year of Family Farming (#IYFF14) and on occasion of the World International Youth Day, YPARD Nepal, in collaboration with AgriYouthNepal (AYN) and Nepal Agricultural Cooperative Central Federation Ltd. (NACCFL) kicked-off YPARD Nepal Family Farming Photo Contest on 13th of August, 2014.
With the goal of giving a stronger voice to family farmers as well as the recognition they deserve for their key role in the construction of a food secured future, the competition targeted Nepalese citizens willing to transmit the strength, potential, contribution and challenges that family farmers meet in their daily lives.
In three months, YPARD Nepal received more than 200 submissions portraying family farmers’ livelihoods in the agricultural, livestock, pasture, forestry and aquaculture sectors from different landscapes of Nepal.
Contest winners were awarded cash prizes as well as certificates of appreciation during the opening session of the National Youth Forum on Agro-based Entrepreneurship Development (#NYFAED15) which was held on 9th -11th January, 2015 in Kathmandu, Nepal.
