We are pleased to congratulate Mr. Erpan Faryadi of Indonesia as the winner of the 2009 “ILC Photo of the Year” contest.
According to Mr. Faryadi, the winning photo was “taken during the recent 2009 International Human Rights Day in December, 2009, in Jakarta, Indonesia, where farmers protested against land grabs and demanded land rights and land reform to be implemented.” He hopes the photo “will share the vision of ILC as an international forum for pro-people land rights policies.”
Many thanks to everyone who participated for the wonderful pictures we received. We look forward to next year’s competition!
Currently, ILC has regional platforms in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This provides opportunities for national and regional members to strengthen their ownership of ILC, and ensures that the actions of ILC are more relevant to the specific regional contexts.
