This year the savewater!® Photographic Competition has seen the most entries ever – over 3,700 entries from more than 90 countries around the world. These entries show that valuing water is something that crosses the boundaries of nations, tribes and languages – photography has been a great way to capture that.
There were a lot of high calibre entries in the competition which meant the judges had a hard time picking the finalists and winners. We thank all of the entrants who took the time to take a picture and submit it into the competition. Here are the winning and runner up images for 2013:
