Syngenta Awards 2010 Campaign

I was in Brazil to photograph for a global campaign for Syngenta, a large global Swiss agribusiness company which notably markets seeds and pesticides. Syngenta is involved in biotechnology and genomic research.

The campaign was part of Syngenta Awards 2010. Syngenta’s Awards programme is a cornerstone of its employee engagement strategy and aims to make innovators of all the company’s employees.

BergHind Joseph developed a campaign concept and marketing collateral.
