Subject: Waterless Life
In our 2018 competition, the subject was designated as "WATERLESS LIFE".
Water, the source of life, has been considered holy since ancient times. Water represents power and is the mos tperfect healer we can find. It is an indispensable source of life and a life without it is not possible.
Due to th eimportance and necessity of water for life, mankind has preferred to setle close to the sources of water from ancient times. The love of man to the water has been the most important factor in the shaping of civilizations throughou thistory.With the historical past, the cultural and artistic heritage from this past, the historical buildings, the pearl of Turkey Amasya is an ancientcity where thewater and civilization live together.
Especially during the Late Hittite, Phrygianand Urartu periods, water ponds were brought about by carving step water cisterns and rocks for theimportance given to water. Waterchannels are themos tbeautiful examples why the water is crucial for life, the city's culture, and how important it is. The beautiful rivers dividemanyregions of our beautifu lcountry ,also pass through the middle of many cities of theworld. Venice, Rome, Berlin, Vienna, Moscow are just a few examples.
According to ourbelief, water is crucial not only for life, but also for the purpose of purifying from material and spiritual filth. Because of this, first of all, in order to do worship, it needs to be cleaned, so the courts of the mosques are decorated with fountains, the neighborhoods are decorated with magnificent fountains ,baths and hammams. We understand the importance of the bathing culture, which is as old as the history of mankind, for the Romans from the remnants of baths built of precious marbles made of silver and gold faucets left to our city.
Today, the water scientists seek for life on other planets is indispensable fo rsurvival. Theworld is at times in conflict with the communities that want to reach the water. The main reason for this is globalwarming, rapidpopulationgrowth, environmentalpollutionandwaste. Inagriculturalirrigation; water waste has been avoided by allowing restricted freshwater resources, along with low water applications, to allow proper aquaculture.
We are waiting for you to protect water and water civilization with your caricatures on '' Waterless Life '', which tell us how important it is to all living things for from the past to the future and what a life without water will bring.We wish you the best luck .
