H2OforPeace – iPhoneography for Human Rights
H2O FOR PEACE – IPHONEOGRAPHY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS (TAG #H2OFORPEACE), features an international iPhoneographic competition in collaboration with the NEM – the New Era Museum.
The “Fondazione Campana dei Caduti”, Bell of Peace Foundation for Fallen Soldiers will launch its sensitizing campaign in favour of Water as an Instrument of Peace and Harmony among peoples.
The competition ends at the beginning of June with the selection of the finalists and the proclamation of the winner. The works chosen will be screened at the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, Rovereto and included in a video clip with music by Marco Testoni performed by the Pollock Art-Jazz Project. Along with the photographs selected, visitors may view the video at the Foundation, on the social networks and the web, as well as during international events aimed at highlighting the results obtained and the emotions aroused by the competitors’ works.
H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights invites a wide audience of social- networkers to ponder on a highly significant conceptual idea whereby, also according to the UNO, water is life, the sap of human existence. Water is the human Right closest to Life. Sharing the supply of this vital lymph can be assured by dialogue between peoples, the circulation of resources. In brief, peace.
This sensitising campaign has chosen the art which more than any other spells sharing: iPhoneography, that is, a widespread, democratic art which permits people to create images using their smartphones and share them on the internet and the social networks. The enormous potential of this art make it the ideal creative medium for providing the whole world with a means of speaking about an important topic like water. This art, born on the social web, is now examined and studied in for its intrinsic worth and its strongly democratic nature also within traditional photographic environments.
The president of the jury will be Andrea Bigiarini, originator and founder of the New Era Museum. The works will also be adjudicated by: Marco Di Battista, Dilshad Corleone, Giancarlo Beltrame, Davide Capponi.
