INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION „A CHANCE FOR THE BLUE DANUBE” – 2014

 

Regulations

Since 2000, Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Authority (DDBRA) in partnership with “George Georgescu" Arts High School, organise the National Poster Competition on ecological theme called "A CHANCE FOR THE BLUE DANUBE." The meeting place of all messages cannot be other than Tulcea/Romania, the terminus point of the Danube River, where, before its meeting with the Black Sea, creates the most fascinating place in Europe – the Danube Delta.

The objective of the competition is that through exhibitions of posters dedicated to nature protection, through art, to raise and maintain the constant interest of public opinion and of the younger generation in particular, on the need for conservation of natural ecosystems. Thus, the artistic message becomes a signal, a warning contributing to sensitise decision-makers, but in the same time represents an environmental education factor, an instrument trying to attract and involve the public in conservation and protection of DANUBE and DANUBE DELTA waters.

The competition increased in value from one year to another and beginning with 2010 it became international and a selection of the best artworks was displayed in different locations along the Danube: in Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany.

In 2014, the 15th edition of this international competition will be organized, a new opportunity to invite you all to participate with special creations.
