Water - the Scarce Resource

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

We rely on water to keep our bodies working, to feed the crops and animals that sustain us, to keep the land lush and healthy, and to aid with so many of the processes that we’ve developed. Fresh water is a limited resource, not evenly distributed around the world, and becoming even more volatile in its availability due to the changing climate. Longer droughts and more intense storms are creating many challenges. In this contest we’re examining ways in which we use water, as well as the ways we collect it, its many sources, and the impacts on communities and the environment of water’s often elusive nature and insufficient supply. Don’t feel too constrained by the brief, choosing instead to share your interpretation of the title.
