As part of the International Year of Soils, FAO launches the #soils4life Instagram contest to highlight the importance of sustainable soil management and share photos related to soils, their potential, their functions, but also instances of exploitation or abuse to help draw attention to the myriad of issues concerning this valuable resource.
In order to participate you just take a photo of something you want to draw attention to regarding soils and share it on Instagram. Tell in the posting where the photo was taken and why you think soils are important for a healthy life and a better future, then include the hashtag #soils4life. Don’t forget to set your account to public to have your likes counted!
In fact, in the first round of the contest (from 2 April until 17 May) the twenty photos with the most likes on their Instagram account will be selected for a second round of voting (other social media channels do not matter for this contest). The final 20 photos will be featured on the @UNFAO Instagram account and a photo album will be shared on the FAO webpage. During the second round (from 25 May), people will vote on the FAO Instagram account the three out of twenty best soil photos. The three most voted photos out of the twenty will be announced on 15 June, and the prizes for the winners will include an International Year of Soils goody bag to be delivered directly to the winners.
Even if you don’t participate in the contest, you can spread the word across your network and help FAO to raise awareness of the contest and the International Year of Soils. Further information is available here.
