The competition was created by IDEA (International Conversation for Environmental Action) along with the photographer and National Geographic photographer and relief Reza. Six pictures were chosen from over 4,000 records from over 90 countries.
The winning picture of the first Kid's Sight On Globe Worldwide Youth Digital cameras Contest was taken by eight-year-old Anastasya Vorobko from Saint Petersburg in Russia. Anastasya’s photograph titled “SOS” represents a bird flying over the thick pollution being produced from a manufacturer route. Anastasya has only been capturing pictures for a season but is keen to document the surroundings through photography. Upon finding out that she had won the competition, she said:
I’m so excited about winning the Children’s Eyes On Earth contest – it’s really inspired me to keep taking photographs to tell stories. I wanted to show everyone how bad the air is in our city. I see the bird in this picture as carrying a message around the world, with the hope that adults everywhere will start to care about the air that we breathe. If we don’t look after our planet, then who will?Here are the winning images and some of the selected ones. You can see more submissions on Children's Eyes On Earth’s website.
