Best Group Shot

“It’s Fun in ARI”
by Annie Jane Lagwan (Philippine)

Comment from Committee:

Happy, cooperative, joyful, good relationship. Those are the words that describe well about this picture. A shot from the community rice transplanting event.


Best Landscape shot

“1,2,3,4 Follow me!!!!”
by Paskaria Imanuel Perangin-angin (Indonesia)

Comment from Committee:

Beautiful field of the ARI in the background and evenly plotted 5 members in the foreground makes the picture look aesthetically unique. An ordinary daily life captured mindfully with a sense of love.


Best Snapshot

by Kanako Nakata (Japan)

Comment from Committee

The very first community event at Nishinasuno Park. The rural leaders building friendships. Good to see them playing so joyfully like innocent children!

The most popular picture on the Facebook post. “The joy of harvesting. I like everyone’s smiles (S.H)”, “Satisfying feeling that each one is expressing is wonderful.(M.T)”
