One Health Photo Competition

In early June 2020, we put out a call for the OHDI One Health Photo Competition which aimed to promote image work of arts that have a One Health message or showcase an interaction between either human, animal, plant, or environmental health. By the competition deadline of June 30, 2020, we received a record number of 93 photo entries from over 15 countries across the world!

After much deliberations and many difficult decisions, we finally selected 14 photo entries to proceed with the semi-final stage. For this round, each of the 14 photo semi-finalists has been presented for public voting over the next one week on our Instagram platform (@onehealthdev). Subsequently, our esteemed judges will then make a decision on the 3 photos with the most likes/votes to select the overall winner of the One Health Photo Competition to be announced on Monday 27th July 2020. We are all enjoined to engage with this competition by following @onehealthdev on Instagram and supporting your favorite pictures and photographers.

“Smoking Out Dengue Caption: Dengue has been a problem in India for centuries. In the 30’s there was no aspect of life in the country that was not affected by dengue or malaria. During the latter parts of nineteen & early twentieth centuries, nearly one-fourth of Indian’s population suffered from dengue & other forms of mosquito diseases. ‘Fogging Method’ has commonly used to control mosquitoes at India. The best time to kill adult mosquitoes by fogging is at dusk, when they are most active & looking for food (mosquitoes feed on human or animal blood). The aerosol fog primarily targets flying mosquitoes, which is why the timing of the spray is critical. A thermal fogger (as opposed to a cold fogger) produces a thick pesticide fog/smoke by heating the fogging solution. It produces a nice insect fog that is directed to areas where it would like to kill mosquitoes & other biting pests. This picture shows, an NGO worker using fogging treatment in a stable to reduce dengue & others mosquito diseases at New Delhi in India”
