Anatoliki S.A. organized the 2nd Photography Competition On “The Future we Want – Sustainable Management of Resources”
The inspiration for the organization of the second photography competition and exhibition derived from the projects «EYD2015 – The Future we Want» and «Change the Power (Em) Power to Change: Local authorities towards the SDGs and Climate Justice», which capitalizes and further develops the experience of the project EYD2015. Both projects are co-funded by the European Union and sensitize people on SDGs and Climate Change.
The competition was organized as a Corporate Social Responsibility action of Anatoliki S.A. in order to raise the awareness among young people on the issues of Sustainable Management of Resources and Alternative Ways of Living in Cities. Young people were invited to become creative and to capture how they see the future through the art of photography.
Students of the high schools and lyceums of the Region of Macedonia participated and competed in three categories:
- URBAN AREAS
- RURAL AREAS
- HUMAN ACTIVITIES
Over 200 photographs by 100 high school and lyceum students were collected and evaluated by a six-membered jury (consisting of two art Professors, one Director, one Professional photographer and two Environmental Education Teachers), as well as by wider public through Facebook.
The photographs were exhibited at Vafopouleio Cultural Center on 10th - 17th May 2019, inviting the public to become aware of the future we want. The best photos were awarded at a prize ceremony with the participation of students, teachers, parents and members of the jury.

The 10 photographs that were distinguished by the public through Facebook likes were awarded with 10 audience praises.
