Adelaide, AUS (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
This year, the Photo Contest has been opened up to an international audience, with $AUD1,000 to be awarded to the overall winner. Other prizes include two nights at the Jacobs Creek Visitor's Centre in the Barossa Valley, to be awarded to one lucky Australian winner, and a mystery prize pack for the photo with the highest number of public votes.
In 2012, the IRF World Rivers Day photo contest received hundreds of entries, with Solveig Larsen taking out the win with her enchanting photo of the Never Never River. Given the popularity of last year's contest, the fact that 2013 is the UN International Year of Water Cooperation, and in the true spirit of World Rivers Day, IRF made the decision to open it up to an international audience this year.
World Rivers Day is held annually on the last Sunday of September, with millions of people in over 60 countries participating in the events. World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world's waterways. It highlights the many values of rivers and strives to increase public awareness and encourages the improved stewardship of rivers around the world.
