Bangladesh Embassy in The Hague, in partnership with top Dutch water institution (Deltares), on Tuesday launched a unique photo and video contest, among Bangladesh and the Netherlands nationals titled ‘[email protected] The Water Story.’

Embassy took the novel initiative to mark the 50 years of Bangladesh-Netherlands diplomatic ties (in 2022), to "celebrate friendship" between the two peoples.

As Bangladesh celebrates its 50 years of independence in 2021 and 50 years of Bangladesh-Netherlands ties in 2022, there can be no better common element than water to highlight collective aspirations, resilience and innovation of Bangladesh and Dutch people, said a press release of the Bangladesh Embassy in The Hague, Netherlands.

There will be one grand prize (250 Euros) and nine theme prizes (150, 100 and 50 Euro respectively)

Winning photos will be presented in first quarter of 2022 in a photo-book. An exhibition will later highlight some of the key water-related developments and achievements evolving from the 50 years of Bangladesh independence and 50 years of Bangladesh – Netherlands diplomatic relations.

The contest is open to all Bangladeshis: children, youth, amateurs, professionals. Contest details are accessible at:

The embassy invites any interested Bangladeshi to take a click and submit in the web portal by October 30, 2021.
