Last September, kids all over the world were invited to enter their pictures in the Children's Eyes on Earth photo contest to help raise awareness of environmental issues while giving budding artists a chance to share their visions with the world. The contest which was limited to photographers 17 and younger, asked entrants to portray challenges to the environment in a way that inspires their elders to take action.
The contest was created by IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action) along with the photographer and National Geographic photographer and humanitarian Reza. Six photographs were chosen from over 4,000 entries from over 90 countries.

The winning photograph of the inaugural Children’s Eyes On Earth International Youth Photography Contest was taken by eight-year-old Anastasya Vorobko from Saint Petersburg in Russia. Anastasya’s photograph titled “SOS” depicts a bird flying over the thick smog being emitted from a factory funnel. Anastasya has only been taking photographs for a year but is keen to document the environment through photography. Upon finding out that she had won the contest, she said:

I’m so excited about winning the Children’s Eyes On Earth contest – it’s really inspired me to keep taking photographs to tell stories. I wanted to show everyone how bad the air is in our city. I see the bird in this picture as carrying a message around the world, with the hope that adults everywhere will start to care about the air that we breathe. If we don’t look after our planet, then who will?

Here are the winning images and some of the selected ones.
