The Dead Sea Life Competition was launched during the height of Coronavirus as an official Earth Day initiative with participation from 40 countries, including from the Middle East: Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, and UAE. A total of 3524 photographers, 13,123 photos and 9,083,102 votes were received. The judges included Spencer Tunick, Roie Galitz, Keren Bar Gil, & Casey Kelbaugh who selected Alex Bronfer for the Best Photograph and helped choose 40 images for the exhibition.

We are pleased to further announce that a large-scale physical exhibition will be opening up at the Arad Cultural Center on April 22 and be open to the public for one year in cooperation with the Israel Government Coronavirus regulations. The exhibition is being sponsored by the Arad Regional Council, GuruShots, Epson, Picture Perfect, JNF, and the Prima Hotels.

The initiators of the photo competition were Noam Bedein & Ari Leon Fruchter who are the founders of the Dead Sea Revival Project - a non-profit dedicated to documenting the Dead Sea and sharing it globally. “We were ecstatic and completely unprepared for the mass public support we received for the photo competition, and are now doing everything possible for the world to enjoy these works through a virtual museum and an exhibition by the Dead Sea. Our dream is to be able to one day build and operate a physical museum by the Dead Sea”.
