Nikon Prizes in UN Contest Not Just Potatos

2008 is the International Year of the Tuber, and the United Nation's Food and Agricultural Organization is hosting a photo contest designed to bring attention to this prolific global food source.

The UN agency is looking for the best shots that "illustrate potato biodiversity, cultivation, processing, trade, marketing, consumption and utilization." Noted National Geographic shooter Steve McCurry will be one of the judges, and Nikon is sponsoring many of the main prizes, including a Nikon D60 bundle for the Amateur and a D300 bundle for Professional categories.
