World Food Day 2018 Poster Contest

World Food Day 2018 Poster Contest, an online competition, is going to be held on 9th of November, 2018 which is being organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Children and teens (worldwide) aged from 5 to 19 can participate in this contest and use their imagination and create a poster that illustrates their idea of Zero Hunger. Young minds can be inspired by the World Food Day Activity Book (2017) that explains what Zero Hunger is and how everyone needs to come together and take action to reach this global goal.

Make sure to submit your entry (take a photo or scan your photo) by filling out the form before the deadline: 9 November 2018. You can fill in your name for the World Food Day 2018 Poster Contest here.

Three winners in each age category will be selected by the jury and will be announced in December. Winners will be promoted by FAO offices around the world and receive a surprise gift bag and Certificate of Recognition. They will also feature in an exhibition at FAO headquarters in Rome.
