On 15 June 2012 the company founded by Hans Grohe at Schiltach in the Black Forest marks an unusual anniversary, since 111 years have passed since 1901: a number that is an emblem of excellence, for a company that specializes in the production of showers and faucets, and is well known for its policies of environmental protection. The international photography competition organized for the occasion is on the theme of water. In collaboration with the publishing house Merian/Travel House Media, Hansgrohe will select 111 photographs to create a book:Magical – the 111 most beautiful places of water in the world.
Alongside shots by famous photographers, people can also see their own snapshots published, by sending them to the site http://www.hansgrohe-int.com/14504.htm. The jury will also select the 11 best pictures, to reward with a vacation for two at one of the 111 sites shown in the book.
