International photo contest on the subject of water
Applications will be accepted until 18 August 2014.
Even if everything burns out on this planet, there would be water left – and in it a spark of a new life.
A man used to live in a close contact with nature, apprecied, cherished and intensively observed it. His whole life used to run in between four elements which are: EARTH, FIRE, WATER, AIR. During the evolution a man figured there were many more elements, perceived unsurmised scientific ideas, went to the Moon and did many other things, and in his being through history he ignored THE THIRD ELEMENT – WATER as an elementary substance of his life. World medias are daily infoming us of either lack of clean water or some new ecological incidents or even cataclysms caused by water.
This is one of the reasons for “inventory-making“ of water and everything connected to it.
The main goal of this project is to encourage people to discover natural resources and attractions in their immediate surroundings related to water and also to detect specific eco situations which endanger our THIRD ELEMENT or maybe give another, maybe their own, view on the subject through photographs.
