Seeds in Space Comic Book Contest Gallery

More than 70 young artists from around the world submitted designs for the Seeds in Space Comic Book Contest held by the IAEA and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Artists, aged between 14 and 18, depicted the journey of seeds sent to the International Space Station (ISS), part of an IAEA and FAO research project on breeding new crop varieties that can withstand the effects of climate change and help farmers provide sufficient food. 

The competition aimed to inspire a younger generation in nuclear science and technology, by asking, ‘How will cosmic radiation and the harsh conditions of space help us grow better crops for global food security on Earth?’. 

The winner is Seemab Fatima from Pakistan, whose ink and watercolour artwork will form the basis of the official comic. The artwork of all 10 finalists is displayed in this virtual gallery.
