This year, the theme of our World Fish Migration Foundation – Wildlife Forever Art Contest was: “Free Flow” We asked children and teenagers aged 4-18 to imagine and illustrate their vision of a free-flowing river, considering all the elements that inhabit and surround it and activities that can be done on free-flowing rivers. 

We were thrilled to receive over 500 entries from six different countries. The creativity displayed was incredible, and our esteemed jury, a mix of scientists, river experts, and river enthusiasts, had the difficult job of choosing the best pieces.
