Raindrops Geneva Award 2011
Raindrops Geneva Award 2011- Best Photographs on the advantages of the use of rainwater. For the first time, this competition will be the result of close collaboration between the IRHA and the very reputed Photojournale, with their “Rainwater/Eau de pluie/Agua de Lluvia project”. The date for the final submission of photographs has been extended to 31st October 2011 at 12 p.m. (midnight) GMT.
Through this competition we aim to make the public, too often insufficiently informed, aware of the various advantages that rainwater harvesting offers by providing sustainable access to water. It is in this context that the IRHA and Photojournale invite photographers, professional and amateur alike, to present their vision on the benefits that this celestial resource can have for both humans and nature.
All works submitted through the Rainwater/Eau de pluie/Agua de Lluvia website (thethirstyplanet.com) are automatically eligible for the Raindrops Geneva 2011 – Best Photographs on the advantages of the use of rainwater competition.
Topics or themes for the photographic works can conceptually include the following.
· Water is Life, the essential element that supports human, animal and plant life
· Sacred or ritualized use of water or the celebration of rain in spiritual ceremonies
· Thirst, scarcity and drought
· Water distribution, including the politics of water distribution, water as a commodity. Impossibility to provide pipe water in remote regions and the role of harvested rainwater for satisfying of the needs.
· Rainwater Harvesting, the best tool for adaptation to the climate changes (storms, floods, drought)
· Rainwater collection, simple technologies at work, water purification
