Premio "Waste to Photo"

Waste to Photo è il concorso fotografico legato al Simposio Sardinia, concepito con l'obiettivo di ricreare, attarverso la fotografia, lo scenario della situazione globale in merito a rifiuti e discariche, dai paesi meno sviluppati alle grandi nazioni industrializzate. Il concorso si è ufficialmente chiuso il 31 Maggio, ricevendo oltre un centinaio di proposte fotografiche. Durante il Simposio, è stata allestita una mostra fotografica con gli scatti più significativi e una giuria composta dai membri del Managing Board IWWG e fotografi professionisti ha decretato la foto vincitrice.

A tal riguardo, siamo orgogliosi di annunciare che il vincitore dell'edizione 2019 del concorso Waste to Photo è Mahfuzul Hasan Bhuiyan con la fotografia "Toxic Bath" scattata a Dhaka, Bangladesh, dove le industrie conciarie rendono invivibile il fiume Buriganga.
