October 2014: The Global Winner of the 2014 Family Farming photo competition portrays a young farming couple in the Philippines, captured by amateur photographer Danilo Victoriano Jr.

All winners of the photo competition were announced at the Global Dialogue on Family Farming on 27 and 28 October 2014 which took place at the headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome. The prize winning photographers receive a certificate and a small cash prize. Most photos feature in a 2015 family farming photo calendar.

The winning photo was taken last September 2013 during the Rambutan fruit harvest season in San Pablo Laguna province. It reflects a farming couple having a rest during a long day of harvesting. Photographer Danilo O. Victoriano Jr. gave it the title 'Harvesting the fruit of love'. Read the story behind this image and learn more about its photographer.

Philippines. Photographer: Danilo O. Victoriano Jr.

The international photo competition Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth took place as part of the 2014 International Year of Family Farming. Over 1300 photos were received from all continents. An international jury consisting of farmer leaders and renowned artists selected the winning photos. At the same time, people from around the world also voted for their favourite photos, resulting in 5 Public Choices. Congratulations to all winners and a big thank you to everybody who participated!

The photos submitted to the competition speak to the great diversity and the special characteristics of family farmers -such as their connection with nature, the links they create between past, present and future, and their multifunctionality. The photos are a reminder of the need for greater political commitment to work side by side with family farmers in developing policies and practices that respond to their needs and aspirations, notably their access, rights and control over land, water and seeds.

The photo competition was organised by the AgriCultures Network and the World Rural Forum, in close collaboration with the Asian Farmers Association, La Via Campesina and the More and Better Network.
