    Water for all/ No exceptions is the title of World Water Day Photo Contest 2019, a photo contest organized by Lions Club Seregno Aid: funds  of this edition, together with those of the former 2 editions, will support projects to bring drinking water to communities who need water to live, through an international cooperation project for water purification in Kenya. I have been invited to be part of the jury ion this contest.

    World Water Day dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development where an international observance for water was recommended. The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day and it has been held annually since then.

    Georgina Goodwin, with No Water No Life, a portrait of Amina Suleiman in Somaliland, is the winner of the single themed category, an image that synthesized the terrible drought that hit this area where 80% of the livestock is died and population is on the brink of an unprecedented collapse.

    Karla Koegelmann is the winner of the Portfolio category, with the series The Pool focused on synchronized swimming.

    Congratulations to all organizers, winners and participants,  to be part of this wonderful project which aims to raise awareness and support those in real need of help! 

    The winning photos and a selection of the best classified will be exhibited at Seregno’s Auditorium and other locations through the year.
