The Pictet Group has announced its support for the Chittagong Hill Tracts Project in Bangladesh, and will commission one of the shortlisted artists to document the scheme. This Water Aid managed project aims to get clean drinking water to the inhabitants of Chittagong through innovative irrigation methods.
To ensure the Chittagong Hill Tracts Project is recorded on camera, one of the 18 photographers shortlisted for the Prix Pictet will be commissioned to photograph the work in progress on location in Bangladesh. This commission is open to all photographers shortlisted for the Prix Pictet and will be awarded to the practitioner who is deemed most capable of communicating how crucially important sustainability projects such as this one in Bangladesh are to the lives of people around the world.
Royalties from the sale of Water will be used to
fund the initiative.
