APEC Photo Contest is an annual photo contest open for participants from the 21 APEC member economies. Since 2011, APEC Photo Contest seeks to raise awareness about APEC’s mission, achievements, and benefits.

Each year, APEC and its host economy selects a specific set of priorities to focus on. In 2015, Philippines selected the theme “Building Inclusive Economies, Building a Better World,” moving towards policies and initiatives that integrate all the economies and ensure everyone has access to economic prosperity.

APEC invited participants to share their photographic interpretations of APEC China’s 2014 priorities listed below:

  1. Enhancing the Regional Economic Integration Agenda
  2. Fostering SME Participation in Regional and Global Markets
  3. Investing in Human Capital Development
