Theme: BRINK

Our world is on the brink in many respects. Will we save or destroy our environment? Will we create technology that vastly improves our lives or that will stop us from living them? Will we alter the current political systems to make a better world? Will we consider cultures, species, languages important enough to save? Show us your World on the Brink by submitting your work to be in with a chance to win.
