About the photo:
In 2013, over 300 chili producers (of whom 90% were women) from Bogra and Fulchari received training on how to cultivate chilies, how to monitor the harvesting process and create an offset for their crops. What’s more, the farmers have organised themselves into producer groups, so they can pool their resources. It all means they can sell their chillies in bulk to the local food processing companies – so they’re earning more money, and saving on transport costs and market fees. Quite simply, the chillies have transformed many of the local womens’ lives. Now they’re earning more, they can feed their family, and put some money aside to prepare for the floods.

Some breathtaking footage of how the winning shot was taken:
My aim as a photographer is to capture unique moments in life and give them significance by making them static in time. I love to travel and be in different places, meet new people, and enjoy the experience that photography offers, which is to capture Earth’s beautiful and awe-inspiring moments.
