Danube Day 2017 in Bosnia & Herzegovina

Preparations are underway to mark this year's Danube Day. The festivities will include awarding of the national Danube Art Master. If you're between 6-18 years and love your river, this competition is for you!

Your challenge is to create a unique 3D artwork or 1-minute video that celebrates the Danube environment. Rivers should be your inspiration: create your artwork or video during a visit to your local river. Use your creativity to show how rivers are important to you or what should be done to look after them. Then just submit a photo or completed video to the national organisers, Ekotim, and you might end up being crowned Danube Art Master for 2017 and win a Tesla tablet! Two winners will be invited to Vienna for the 14-country Danube Art Master final later in the year. View the Ekotim website for how to enter in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Deadline for entries: Tuesday 20th June 2017.
