Water Integrity Network Photo Competition – Gender and Water Integrity

USD1000 voucher for first prize


Through the Gender Lens: Action, Participation and the Fight Against Corruption in Water

We want photographers to capture the relationship between gender, participation, and the fight against corruption in different ways, across various cultures and locations. Participants are invited to submit up to two photographs that examine these complex elements through your own lens, and we encourage photographers to share your vision of a world working toward increased water integrity, and improved participation across genders such as:

- Non-traditional community leaders improving integrity and transparency
- Participation of all genders in management and decision-making around services
- Activists striving to hold service providers and government to account
- Overcoming obstacles to achieve equal access and fair distribution

Our jury of water and media specialists will select the winning photos from the two categories; Best Overall Photo, and Best Smartphone Photo. Winners will be announced on World Water Day 2018, 22 March 2019. All shortlisted photos will be displayed on the WIN website.
