EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 21 NOVEMBER 2022 – This year, in conjunction with its annual photo competition, BenQ will donate to the World Food Programme (WFP). For every qualified competition entry, from hobby and professional photographers Europe-wide, BenQ will forward 5 euros to the WFP.
“BenQ’s corporate social responsibility is multi-faceted. At the same time, all our activities, share the same goal. That is to contribute to the well-being of society,” Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe, comments.
“One of these facets is our yearly PhotoVue competition. This year, we are searching for creative minds to deliver their photographic take on the fascinating, colourful and diverse subject of cultural heritage. Correlating with our brand promise – ‘Because it matters’ - we are addressing the flip side of the world’s beauty and considering the world’s most needy. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that we will be donating to the World Food Programme.”
The World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian organisation. Almost 21,000 staff worldwide work in over 120 countries and territories to bring life-saving food to people displaced by conflict and made destitute by disasters, and help individuals and communities find life-changing solutions to the multiple challenges they face. https://www.wfp.org/
Captivating Cultural Heritage
