The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) invites professional and amateur photographers around the world to participate in the World Sight 2020 competition, which is held on the second Thursday of October every year and aims to increase global interest in blindness and vision impairment.

Over a billion people have a vision impairment that could have been treated or addressed. The prevalence of vision impairment in many low- and middle-income regions is estimated to be four times higher than in high-income regions. 2020 has been a year of extraordinary changes because of the COVID-19 pandemic raging across the world. Most countries have prioritized COVID-19 control and every aspect of the country’s health system has a role to play.
