Danube Art Master

Video showcasing the Danube Art Master at the 2016 ICPDR Ministerial Meeting.

2015 saw a new theme - The Grand Danube Masquerade - for the 12th year of the basin-wide country competition that unites children across the Basin in an artistic extravaganza. Over the last 11 years, tens of thousands of environmental artworks have been created by young people living in the 14 countries of the Danube Basin.

Enjoy some of the impressions given here. For further information on the competition across the Danube Basin, check out the Danube Art Master on Facebook. View previous years' entries below and on Flickr 2011, 2012,  2013 and 2014.

Jointly overseen by the Global Water Partnership Central and Eastern Europe (GWP CEE) and the ICPDR, this ambitious contest encourages children to visit their local rivers and create artworks reflecting what the Danube means to them. By entering the competition, the children not only have a great time making their artwork but are also motivated to consider the future of the rivers and the people and wildife that rely on them. The result is a visual representation of young people's vision for the Danube Basin.
