How can we explain the importance of our natural treasures - the environment, living creatures, and Mother Nature? How do we tell people that it is up to each of us to safeguard the precious resources, plants and animals of today's world for future generations?
Are words enough, or do pictures tell a better story?
ANA, one of Japan and Asia's leading airlines, invites you to tell your story about our natural treasures in both words and pictures through its sixth International Picture Book Competition.
The name of the competition is 'AOZORA', which is Japanese for 'Blue Skies'.
Entries will be judged by a panel headed by the renowned novelist and naturalist, C W Nicol.
The winners will be announced through the ANA website in January, 2009.
