The contest will award the Acea EcoArt Prize 2010, publish the EcoArt Book - edition 2010 Catalog and organize an exhibition.
The contest also aims to put Fortunato Productions in contact with artists and creative people to be involved in activities of cultural and artistic events production and communication projects.
Artists are called to express their creativity to represent the relationship between water, man and the environment with relation to sustainable development of the planet.
The reflection can also be extended to water pollution, water as source of life, water as source of renuable energy, the process of desertification and emergency situations.
All of which themes which simultaneously grip the planet and ask a series of burning social, anthropological, political and cultural questions.
The objective is to highlight little known aspects of the water cycle.
To stimulate, through the universal and metaphorical language of art, a series of reflections on what lies behind the apparent simplicity of pure water and what happens before and after the distribution of this precious resource that flows from taps in our homes and through waterworks, sewers and water treatment facilities.
