Global Change Institute Photography Competition 2016
This year’s photography competition theme is: ‘A view from our waterways: the changing landscape for this vital resource’.
Images may simply be about the different facets of water sources: from rivers to our homes, the multitude of uses that our waterways provide for our existence, both in the rural and urban landscapes; challenges and impacts associated with such human activities on our waterways and the innovative solutions that we have put forth or are proposing. Inspirational interpretations of water sources and uses around the world are most welcomed.
Whether you’re a student who photographs as a hobby, a serious photographer or simply looking for photographic inspiration – we’d encourage you to enter.
