Chickens4Change Photography Competition 2021

This year we will once again run our 5th annual Chickens4Change photography competition in support for one of our key partners, the Rural Poultry Centre (RPC) of Malawi. This year’s theme will be ‘Chicken and Egg Dishes from Around the World’. We want to see beautiful photographs telling the story of how people cook with chicken and eggs from all over the world – the ingredients, people, garden or smallholder farm environments, utensils and kitchens involved in making the special chicken or egg dish. Tell a story about your life and cooking practices through pictures. Multiple photo entries per dish are encouraged! Any kind of poultry or bird or egg dish are welcome! If possible, we are calling for the recipe or the general ingredients to be submitted with the photos so that we can collate a Kyeema cookbook as a fundraiser for food and nutrition security in Malawi. Proceeds will support women and families in rural villages through improved village poultry training activities coordinated by the RPC. 

The top three winning entries will be featured in the book and receive a free hard copy to trial cooking tasty chicken and egg dishes from all around the world. 

For more information, including full terms and conditions, visit the RPC Malawi website. Submit your entries here by the 30th of June 2021. Submission is free, but as always, tax deductible donations through the Kyeema website are welcome. Winning entries will be announced in July and we hope to have the book ready for Christmas 2021 – a lovely gift for your culinary friends.

The kind of photo stories we are looking for!
