2009 River to Well Photo Competition

riverstowell The 2009 River to Well Photo Competition will use 100% of the entry fees to build wells for villages that have no alternative to unsafe water and sanitation.

It is said that 1.1 billion people on this planet do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. That is 1 in 6 people. It is also said that 80% of all sickness and disease is a result of unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation.

This planet is 70% water, but only 2.5% of it is freshwater. Of that 2.5%, only .4% is accessible from surface lakes and rivers. 30% of fresh water lies in underwater aquifers. The only way to get to those aquifers is to drill wells.

A community of passionate people came together to create a fundraiser in the form of a photo competition. In partnership with local businesses and artists, we are ready to change the world and fight the water crisis one photo at a time.

Our goal is simple. Use 100% of the photo competition entry fees to fund the building of a well in a village in the heart of the battle for water and hopefully other villages too. We are seeking other passionate people with talent and creativity to help create the photo competition as well as ask businesses to be involved by donating prizes, funds, or services, as well as, organizations and individuals to create buzz and participate

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, Best of Show Awards are available in each division.
