Winning Chickens4Change photo from Malawi

Our 5th annual Chickens4Change photography competition in collaboration with the Rural Poultry Centre in Malawi this year was a success. The theme was ‘Chicken and Egg Dishes from Around the World’. We asked people to tell a visual story through a photo of a local dish cooked with chicken and/or eggs. The entries submitted will contribute to a Kyeema cookbook fundraiser for improved livelihoods and food and nutrition security in rural Malawi.

And the winner is! 

First place went to Steve Mann from the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) depicting a dish from Malawi. Judges found his photo captioned ‘An egg with sauce dish prepared by a family for lunch in a village in central Malawi’ to best fit the three criteria for the competition – artistic merit, technical excellence and context for the rural setting in which RPC works.

Calling for recipes from every corner of the world.

We are now calling for chicken and/or egg recipes from around the world to fill the pages of our cookbook. If you would like to contribute, please send your recipe and photos of any of the following – the ingredients, equipment, people, and environment involved in making the dish and of course the beautiful final product to We would also love to receive accompanying stories about the significance of the dish to improve the richness of the book. The cookbook will be available for sale in 2022 and all profits will be donated to the work of the Rural Poultry Centre in Malawi to improve rural lives through village poultry. Every donation will be combined with funding from the Australian Government to reach more people. We have committed to contribute $1 for every $5 we receive from the Australian government. Your donation will allow us to extend our core partner program in Malawi.
