Student Activities

Photography competition


As part of the Insects to Feed the World 2022 conference, we invite participants to take part in a photography competition. You can submit your work in one or two categories: 

  • Edible insects – one of these precious critters (alive, transformed, in food, etc.) 
  • Actors in edible insects – the photograph demonstrate activities directly related to the research, the production, the transformation, or the consumption of edible insects; show us the hidden face of your work! 

Submitted photographs will be printed and exposed during the Insects to Feed the World 2022 conference*; participants of the event will be invited to vote for their favorite photograph from each category during the conference (on site). The winner will be announced at the closing ceremony on June 16 and receive a prize of 100 CA$. 

A selection of submitted work made by the local committee will be exposed during the Eating Insects North activity at the Grand Marché of Québec, from June 16th to June 18th 2022.  

*If the number of submissions for each category exceeds 20 photographs, the Committee reserves the right to do a pre-selection of the work for the competition to be exposed during the conference.

Speed Networking


Conferences are a great opportunity to meet other international experts and create connections. It’s a chance to forge relations that could lead to collaborations, help you find a place to pursuit your academic career, or simply learn of other interesting projects.

The Speed Networking activity was put in place to facilitate the sometime difficult process of meeting other participants and spark constructive discussions. It is a structured event where participants are paired to interact with each other for a few minutes before switching to converse with someone else.

Date: Monday June 13th

Place: Hall 2000, Centre des congrès de Québec

To participate in this activity, fill the following form:
