The legendary American science fiction writer asked mankind one of the most pressing questions of our time: "When our descendants see the desert into which we turned the Earth, what excuse will they find for us?" Of course, he is only one of many who tried to point out to people the need to respect nature. As well as Children's Eyes on Earth Worldwide Young Photographers Contest - one of the attempts to show the Earth without embellishment, as we have already inherited it from previous generations.

The Children's Eyes on Earth competition was announced last September. Young photographers, whose age should not have been more than 17 years old, presented their vision of current environmental problems. The competition was initiated by such international organizations as IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action) and National Geographic. According to the organizers, it is the children's view of the world that can become an impetus for adults to finally think seriously about the problems of the environment and change their attitude towards it.

Looking at the photographs, you understand that the young masters approached the problem very responsibly. More than 4 thousand works from 90 countries of the world were sent to the competition, which testifies to the deep concern of children from different parts of the world with the ecology of the Earth. Only six works were recognized as the best, among which the first place was taken by the Russian woman Anastasia Vorobko. An eight-year-old resident of St. Petersburg presented a work under the more than laconic title "SOS", which depicts a bird against the background of thick clouds of smoke from a factory chimney. The girl, having learned about her victory, said that she really wanted to show with this photo how bad air the inhabitants of big cities are forced to breathe.

The Audience Award went to another Russian woman, Ksenia Saberzhanova.

It is amazing how young talents manage to achieve such expressiveness of the frame and high professionalism of shooting. However, numerous publications on our website confirm that age is not the main thing for a photographer. On Culturology.ru we have already written about such young talents as M-a-e-e, Alex Stoddard and Florent Bonne.
