Photos sought for 'Women Feed the World' project

Have you worked with women involved in food production in California and around the world and have photos to show? If you enjoy taking pictures of women at work on what they do or how they make the most of what they can with what they have, photos are being sought for a project known as "Women Feed the World" program. In the Sacramento-Davis area, the University of California, Davis is seeking photos for a project, according to its December 17, 2013 news release, "Photos sought for 'Women Feed the World'." It's open to the public. So you don't have to be a student or faculty to submit photos to the project.

The "Women Feed the World" event website includes a link to upload photos and stories. The forthcoming gallery will be on the same website.

The Campus Community Book Project and other campus sponsors are seeking photos for a January event showcasing women’s contributions to agriculture, food and nutrition — from fields to packinghouses and markets, in businesses, labs, restaurants and homes, and to our plates. Each photo should be accompanied by a write-up (up to 250 words) of the story behind the photo. Multiple entries are welcome. Student work will receive priority.

All of this is scheduled the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014 in the Conference Center Ballroom. The program begins at 6 p.m., and the program will run to 8:30 p.m.

The program, “Women Feeding the World: Farmers, Mothers and CEOs,” is free and open to the public, in conjunction with the 2013-14 campus book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.

Photos (and the stories behind them) are welcome from students and researchers and others who have worked with women involved in food production in California and around the world. The gallery presentation will be followed by an evening of stories from women who play a variety of roles in the food system.

Co-sponsors at UC Davis: World Food Center; Blum Center for Developing Economies; International Programs Office, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; Horticulture Collaborative Research Support Program; Program in International and Community Nutrition; and Women’s Resources and Research Center. Freedom from Hunger, a Davis-based international organization, is also a co-sponsor.

Photo submissions

Each photo should be accompanied by a write-up (up to 250 words) of the story behind the photo. Multiple entries are welcome. Student work will receive priority.

Selected submissions will be shared in an online gallery, and a limited number will be printed and featured at the event. “Enter now to help us get the conversation started,” the organizers said. The deadline is Friday, Jan. 10.

The "Women Feed the World" event website includes a link to upload photos and stories. The forthcoming gallery will be on the same website.
