For this new edition, Irritec has chosen the theme 'Next generation: the stories of young people in agriculture,' aimed at collecting images of the young ones in the field, narrated through photography.
The winner of the contest will be featured in a video-reportage by the students of Mohole, a School of film, music, visual communication and storytelling based in Milan, Italy.
'Best Agrishot 2022' is a call to narrate the stories of the agricultural world through photographic shots. It is an opportunity to showcase a sector that is crucial for economic, social and environmental development at an international scale. Irritec, specialized in precision irrigation sector, is behind the international photography contest for the fourth consecutive year.
Young people are an important driver for the agricultural sector. According to a recent data analysis, there are more than 55,000 young men and women entrepreneurs under 35 who joined the fields in recent years in Italy. In addition to new enthusiasm and stimuli, the new generations are also bringing a renewed focus on sustainability in agriculture through the application of technological and innovative solutions - such as the precision irrigation systems studied by Irritec.
"The Best Agrishot contest is meant to highlight the efforts of all those who work in the agricultural supply chain, offering a moment of shared experience through the photographic account of different backgrounds.”
"The last edition of the contest was dedicated to women working in the sector, while this year the real protagonists will be young people, employees or owners of farms," said Giulia Giuffrè, board member and Irritec sustainability ambassador. "New agricultural entrepreneurs are increasingly oriented toward sustainable choices, ready to bet on technological innovation and digitization of production systems. Through Best Agrishot 2022, Irritec is promoting change that sees the new generation as the engine for digital and sustainable transformation."
The Best Agrishot 2022 competition is open to agricultural professionals from all over the world. You can enter by logging on to the dedicated website (https://www.irritec.it/best-agrishot/) and uploading up to ten meaningful photos, accompanied by a text about the value of young people and the experience on their farm.
The deadline for submitting your application is 31 August 2022. The announcement of the winner of Best Agrishot 2022 will take place on Irritec's social channels and on those of SalinaDocFest, the important International Narrative Documentary Festival founded and directed by filmmaker Giovanna Taviani, now in its 16th edition.
