Deadline: August 31, 2018
Applications are invited for the Asia Water Forum #WaterYouDoing Youth Photo Competition 2018. As part of AWF 2018, youth from ADB member countries are encouraged to take and submit photos that demonstrate how their generation can contribute to improving the water sector.
To the youth of Asia and the Pacific, tell them #wateryoudoing. How can you help address issues in water supply, sanitation, and the like? If you can channel your idealism and capture your creative ideas in a photo, what would it show? How does water affect you and your community, and what is the change you’d like to make?
The theme of the youth photo contest centers on bringing out the youth’s unique contribution to the development of the region’s water sector, specifically in the following major activities of ADB’s water operations:
- Supplying water
- Sanitation and water quality
- Water for food
- Water for energy and
- Water resources management
