Ivan Pictet, speaking at the award ceremony, announced that Munem Wasif, one of the photographers shortlisted for Prix Pictet Water, will be awarded the commission to document WaterAid’s Chittagong Hill Tracts Project in Bangladesh which is supported by Pictet & Cie.

The partners of Pictet & Cie have agreed to commission Munem Wasif to record the evolution of WaterAid’s project that aims to bring clean tap water to village communities in Bangladesh. Wasif’s photographs will be used to illustrate how important such projects are, especially to countries such as Bangladesh where over 65 million of a population of 140 million have no access to sanitation.
