This looks like a good opportunity to get some photos of people in garb
making or eating historic foods and get them into a calendar.  If pictures
are taken in a cloudy bright area to produce good color in the photo and
positioned to exclude modern items from the photos, it would increase
their chances of being chosen.

April 26, 2007 - Friends of the Earth International today announces
the launch of its second annual photo competition, which will gather
photos on the theme of food & agriculture from around the globe.

The best shots will feature in a Friends of the Earth International
2008 wall calendar and in a cookbook.

We are looking for imaginative, striking photos related to food and
agriculture around the world in the following categories:
1) people
2) nature's bounty
3) markets
4) cooking and eating

The judges for this year's competition include:
1) Yann Arthus-Bertrand, world renowned aerial photographer of the
planet's ecosystems [1]
2) Bangladeshi photographer G.M.B. Akash, first-place winner of last
year's Friends of the  Earth International photo competition and
cover photographer of the 2007 calendar [2]
3) Peter Menzel, US photojournalist and author of "Hungry Planet:
What The World Eats" [3].

Our global photo competition is free of charge, and both professional
and amateur photographers are invited to submit photos. We
particularly encourage young people, women and people living in the
developing world to take part.

The deadline for entries is 15 June 2007.
