Annual competition from Colors of Humanity Gallery for artists and photographers of all countries. Paintings (painting, graphics, any other techniques, 2D) on the inspiring theme "Water" should be presented. Cash prizes are awarded.

Water covers 71% of the earth's surface and is essential for life. 96.5% of water resources are concentrated in seas and oceans. Although the sea affects climate and plays an important role in the carbon and nitrogen cycles, we value it first and foremost for its beauty and power.
