Delft, 30 June 2022. The Bangladesh Ambassador in the Netherlands Mr Riaz Hamidullah, and Dutch Water Envoy Mr Henk Ovink, launched a book capturing award-winning pictures from younger Bangladeshi and Dutch photographers.
The book results from sixteen months of collaboration between the main Dutch water analysis establishment, Deltares – Annemieke Nijhof and the Embassy of Bangladesh.
In the past year, the Photo Contest had 800,000 outreaches on social media of which a jury has selected ten Bangladeshi pictures.
The commemorative photo book has been produced as a part of 50 years of diplomatic ties between the Netherlands and Bangladesh and devoted to the Father of Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The book launching event attracted major figures from the Dutch water sector, such as IHE, Wageningen University, Royal Haskoning, and other institutions.
Several news outlets in Bangladesh as Financial Express, TBS News, and UNB, divulgated the news of the launching of the prestigious work.
Kudos to the Embassy of Bangladesh in the Netherlands.
