Do you have photos that tell stories about the diversity of the Mekong River?
The Mekong River Commission (MRC) is holding a photography contest, encouraging amateur photographers to share their images that capture the diversity of the Mekong, from its beautiful nature to various use of water to pressing challenges, to showcase the need for cross-border cooperation for sustainable development of the basin.
The contest is organised in collaboration with the National Mekong Committees of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Viet Nam, as part of the MRC’s Mekong Integrated Water Resources Management Project (M-IWRMP). The Project facilitates transboundary cooperation among the lower Mekong countries at both national and basin levels, with the application of the MRC’s procedural rules and tools on water use negotiation, data sharing and river flow monitoring.
Please submit a maximum of 5 photos that highlight:
Winning photographers will be invited to an award ceremony hosted by the MRC Secretariat in Vientiane, Lao PDR in November 2017. Winning images may be displayed and featured in the 2018 MRC’s IWRMP calendar and other visual products.
The contest is open to amateur photographers of all ages. Participants must be a citizen and resident of one of the MRC’s member countries: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
