World Sight Day Photo CompetitionWorld Sight Day (WSD), Thursday, October 14, is an international day of awareness held every October to focus attention on the global issue of eye health.Each year, the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness holds the World Sight Day photo competition. The IAPB has announced the 2021 winners of the photo competition. A panel of five judges has chosen ‘Ladakhi Weaver’ by Julie-Anne Davies as this year’s winning professional Photo of the Year and ‘Going to School’ by Saiful Islam as the winning amateur Photo of the Year.
“Our hope was that the competition would provide professional and amateur photographers with the opportunity to share the stories they’ve captured, and we have been blown away by the calibre of submissions, which are nothing short of exceptional,” said Simon Darvill, head of communications for the IAPB. “We thank everyone who participated and congratulate our winners.”
