"Trading during the pandemic" photo contest

How is trade impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic where you are? Is trade making a difference, and if so, how? How do you see trade helping economic recovery?

Through a photo competition, the WTO and the Enhanced Integrated Framework invite you to reply to these questions with pictures.  While the pandemic is a challenge common to us all, it is also a crisis that we are experiencing in different ways because of where we live, what we trade and who we are. What is your experience?

Submit your photo(s) by 3 March 2021 using the form available here, together with a maximum of 100 words that describe both the photo and context.  The competition is open to anyone (except WTO staff and their families) over the age of 18.

The winner will be announced during the WTO Aid for Trade Stocktaking event to be held on 23-25 March 2021


The winner will receive a DSLR photo camera as a prize. The winning photo will be showcased at the WTO Aid for Trade Stocktaking Event. It will also be given visibility across WTO and EIF digital and social media channels with the appropriate credit.


  • Deadline to submit your photo(s): 3 March
