The Prix Pictet Photography Competition focussing on global sustainability. This years subject matter is water, some of the entries have been captured in a slideshow here on the BBC, and the winner, Benoit Aquin, has just been announced.
These images are stunning and provide a great way to focus our attention on some of the greater problems faced by people not so fortunate. Technology plays a big part in capturing these kinds of images and for those of you who’re into your photography, you must check out the Microsoft Professional Photography website and their blog, which has great information on some of the software. There’s also interesting articles on covering events like when the Dalai Lama spoke at the Seeds of Compassion event in Seattle.
