Prix Pictet for Sustainablility – Water

The Prix Pictet is a global prize for photography aimed at highlighting the problems of climate change. This year’s theme was “water”. The 100,000 Swiss Franc (over USD 88,000) prize was awarded to Benoit Aquim for his series of photographs on the human-induced desertification in China.

The BBC also has a nice slide show with commentary on other photographs and short listed photographers.
