The International Agency for Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) will commemorate World Sight Day on October 12, with a theme of “Love Your Eyes at Work,” spotlighting the importance of eye health in the workplace.

World Sight Day is coordinated by IAPB and supported by about 200 IAPB member organizations around the world. The goal is to increase eye health awareness and offer a platform to influence decision makers to prioritize eye health issues.

As part of its recognition of World Sight Day, IAPB is holding the IAPB World Sight Day 2023 Photo Competition, offering an opportunity for amateur and professional photographers to demonstrate their skills and share with the world what they see and what it means to #LoveYourEyes.

The winning professional photo will receive a $1000 prize, and the winning amateur photo will receive a $750 prize.

Since its inception in 2015, the IAPB World Sight Day Photo Competition has highlighted the importance of eye health, by shining a light on the social and economic impact of vison loss, and to celebrate the tireless efforts of those who work to ensure healthy vision for all.

According to the IAPB, it is seeking images that capture the range of what it means to have healthy vision.

The contest includes several categories to help guide submissions, including your eyes, your eyes at work, health for all, and eye-sights.

  • Your Eyes: A picture capturing the magic of a moment. This category showcases the importance of eye health, rehabilitation and access to services.
  • Your Eyes at Work: A picture capturing subject(s) prioritizing eye care in the workplace – can be posed or observed. This category shines a spotlight on employers and employees understanding the importance of caring for eyesight in the workplace.
  • Health for All: A picture capturing subjects delivering health services. Health professionals, eye health and otherwise. This category celebrates their tireless efforts to ensure no one is left behind.
  • Eye-Sights: This category celebrates the intimate connection between photography and eyes. Entrants are asked to capture their own ‘Eye-sights’ as a reminder to all of us to #LoveYourEyes. Eye-sights can be anything in our everyday life that resembles an eye, like a cloud formation, a landscape or a random object.

The deadline for submissions is October 23, and winners will be announced on November 1.

By entering the World Sight Day Photo Competition, participants’ images become an important part of raising awareness and celebrating why everyone counts and no one should be left behind.
