Video showcasing the Danube Art Master at the 2016 ICPDR Ministerial Meeting.
To read about how Iman Maljić from Bosnia-Herzegovina scooped the 2015 International Danube Art Master crown, see the competition review. Over 1300 children from 11 countries rose to the 2015 challenge to design gowns fit for a Grand Danube Masquerade, but made only from materials found by their rivers. To browse more of the 600 marvellous creations, see Flickr and Facebook!
2015 was the 12th year of this international art extravaganza that has resulted in tens of thousands of artworks lining rivers across 14 countries. 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 art reflecting what the Danube means to them. By entering the competition, the children not only have a great time making their creations 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.
Browse the gallery below to get a taste of how the Danube rivers have inspired the region's children.
