Join us in supporting great causes
Through entering a photo in the contest, photographers are also helping raise money for two Bali based foundations. We are grateful to all participants who will donate their favorite Bali photo to help generate funds that will go directly to these two causes.
During the contest until the 28th of February, you can download preferred images at a small amount of USD$5. Pictures can also be ordered on good quality paper for USD$30 (40×60) and USD$40 (60×90). And an Art book with the 36 pictures selected by the public will be created and sold for USD$50 as stock is available.
All profits from this photo contest will go to two great causes; “SOLEMEN”, a non-profit foundation with the mission to support the disadvantaged in Bali, Indonesia and to “PLASTIC EXCHANGE BALI” a project run to Empower Balinese people to prosper through a barter program that provides sustenance in exchange for collecting plastic waste.
Your Involvement will make an Impact
Sacred Connection, Togetherness, Inspiration, Sharing, Beauty, Dignity, Support, Consciousness, Creativity, Harmony.
BALI, a special vortex where the elements of nature, tree or river, where a smile of a child or the wrinkles of labor, let the soul of all being express its divine. Who hasn’t dreamt to come or come back to the island of Gods to feel this special connection we have lost living busy lives in our material world?
Get inspired by the fantastic resilience of the Balinese, who have captured from crisis the wisdom to overcome with creativity. Participating as a voter will keep the feeling of connection going. Buying a piece of Art will support Dignity, Environment and Hope.
Let’s share beautiful captured moments or wander through the eyes of the artists while travelling is still complicated. More than ever I invite you to join us in this photo contest, waking up this mysterious feeling, connecting to the Sacred and nourishing it again.
