WINNERS OF ACT NOW! PHOTO CONTEST

Photo contest was organised about water for Act Now 2013 event so that those not able to come could join this event. Originally there were two categories   (10-13 yrs and 14-17 yrs). 77 submissions were sent from around the world.

International jury had an extremely difficult task as the subject was seen in so many different ways. Instead of age categories, jury decided to make three different categories and special mention category for younger kids.

Jury's comments : "All the photographs are beautiful, and reflect a sincere wish from each of the artists to communicate to the world their personal feelings about water and its importance to their particular lives. They are beautiful not only visually, but that the statements they make are universal; there is not one human being or living plant or animal on the Earth who cannot relate to each and every one of these wonderful pictures. Congratulations to all the participants! You made very good work! Please continue to observe water and to act on how to keep it important in all of your lives, even after this contest comes to an end. All of humanity will be grateful."
