This year’s international Syngenta Photography Award competition took the theme of ‘scarcity and waste’ to raise awareness of increasingly limited resources around the world.

American photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz won this year’s Syngenta Photography Award which was on the theme of ‘scarcity-waste’. His project is called ‘water’ and is described as a photographic exploration of a natural resource in crisis.
