Zoonoses around the world - Photo Contest 2020

Zoonoses research is diverse and international. In order to capture the diversity of this field of research and especially its global networking in pictures, the Zoonoses Platform 2020 is holding a photo competition.

Under the motto "Zoonoses around the world" all members of the zoonoses platform are invited to submit pictures. We are looking for photos that show our zoonoses bag (old or new design) at interesting places of zoonoses research and give an insight into current zoonoses research worldwide. Images within Germany with international relevance will also be considered. Together with the picture, a short explanation of the photo and its history should be submitted. Evaluated are international character, originality, integration of the bag, quality of the photograph, visibility of the logo, reference to zoonoses research, timeliness and the story behind the picture. The winning photo will be chosen by the Internal Advisory Board in September 2020. The first prize is a bed and breakfast in a Motel One Hotel in a city of your choice in Germany. The closing date for entries is 28 August 2020.

Already took an interesting photo? Then send the picture including a short explanation (150 - 250 words) and your contact details with the subject "Photo competition 2020" to By submitting a picture you agree to the competition conditions and liability rules listed below.
