Water Integrity Network Photography Competition 2018: Win $1000 (USD) voucher for photography equipment!


How is money allocated for water infrastructure and services?
What are examples of effective or wasteful money management in the water sector?
How does an individual’s access to money affect their access to water?

These are questions WIN is tackling this year as we focus on raising awareness about how integrity in money management affects the water sector – and we’re calling on photographers to explore this theme visually!

Money plays a huge role in the water sector; it is needed for infrastructure, operation, and maintenance to deliver clean water and sanitation services. The management of water as a resource also requires money for projects such as irrigation systems, dams, reservoirs, and environmental clean-up. Sometimes this money is effectively used, resulting in successful programmes and projects that deliver safe water and sanitation to citizens and ensure sustainable water resource management. In other cases, money is not honestly spent on its intended purpose, or simply poorly managed, meaning that money can leak out of the water sector, even when it is desperately needed.

This year, WIN invites photographers to examine the relationship between money and water; how it manifests in both cities and rural areas, and how it is affected by integrity! This relationship is intricate and multi-faceted, and we want your images to reflect that as much as possible – so feel free to flex those creative muscles!

Simply send up to TWO original, hi-resolution images related to the theme to winphotocomp[@] via a large file sharing service (for example WeTransfer, TransferNow, Google Drive…)

In your message, please include:
- your full name
- captions for the images
- a signed competition terms form – AVAILABLE HERE

Re: Water Integrity Network Photography Competition - New round in 2019!

The title says "water" - is it meant to include sanitation or strictly water only? I had a look at last year's winners and they were all about drinking water issues. Just wondering.

Re: Water Integrity Network Photography Competition - New round in 2019!


You are right, we sometimes use the term 'water sector' when we in fact mean to cover WASH services, including sanitation, and often WRM as well, where wastewater management is key.
In the latest edition of the photo competition we received several very interesting photos that relate to these broader issues. Here are two below.

See all winning photos here:

We'll be launching the next edition of the photo competition towards the end of the year.
Thanks for your interest!
