Make a video or art-piece on the world's safe drinking water crisis.
Due July 1st, 2015 - According to UNICEF, “more than a billion people do not have access to safe water and well over 2 billion people live without adequate sanitation. At any given time, more than half of the developing world’s population is suffering from one or more of the primary diseases associated with unsafe water and poor sanitation.
Without access to safe water and adequate sanitation, families remain mired in deplorable conditions. Young children die from preventable diseases. Those who survive are often unable to learn in school or succeed in life because of the legacy of ill health in their early years and the burden of recurring illnesses. The benefits of safe water and adequate sanitation extend far beyond tackling disease.”
The aim of the Safe Water Prize is to produce a creative, informative and inspiring collection of artwork/media that focuses on a variety of topics relating to the world safe water crisis. The Safe Water Prize will inspire youth to take action, raise funds, and get involved in providing safe drinking water to families in desperate need.
