First price: Kids washing carrots and drinking water

Comments by judges:
 
The image is playful and portrays the need for our children to grow up to live more sustainably and that adults can learn alongside their children to be so too. The image shows the children interacting and engaging with their natural environment, which is crucial too.
 

Second price:
Wrapping a book

Comments by judges:
 
This set of pictures gives a clear and simple message – that when we give those we care about something valuable, we can send something else too, namely, a concern for the planet. Further, simple steps taken to change our behavior as consumers can go a long way in helping the environment.
