Photo Competition

LIVEXchange is a showcase of the livestock export industry’s innovative and progressive approach to the opportunities and challenges that it faces.

The LIVEXchange 2021 photo competition aims to highlight and visually capture the various aspects of the supply chain, featuring best practice and positive animal welfare.

Photos will be judged on merit including relevance, creativity and technical excellence. LiveCorp will use entries as part of its publicity for LIVEXchange 2021 and for other purposes.

Email your photo (3-10MB) and completed application form to before 11:59pm, Friday 26 February 2021.
