2022 COMPETITION COMING SOON!

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 vision loss, and to celebrate the tireless efforts of those who work to ensure healthy vision for all. ​

The competition is a platform for amateur and professional photographers to share the stories they’ve captured. We look forward to opening the competition.

“Carry your camera everywhere.”
