World Tourism Day 2011 Photo Competition Now Open

29 Jun 11

This year's World Tourism Day Photo Competition is now accepting entries, and everyone is welcome to join in!

Whether you're a budding photographer or just keen on creating keepsakes from your travels, we'd love for you to share your work with UNWTO.  As a tourist, you've surely experienced many moments in which people from different walks of life meet and unite, and this year, that's what World Tourism Day is all about: tourism - linking cultures.

If you have a photo which highlights how tourism is bringing people and cultures together, then enter here and start uploading!  You can enter up to three photos of your own, in color or in black and white, providing they are your own work and previously unpublished.  See here for full competition guidelines.

Prizes include digital cameras and the first prize will be announced soon, so keep checking the WTD website to see what you could win.

Last year, UNWTO was delighted to receive over 500 fantastic entries of photos demonstrating the links between tourism and biodiversity.  Click here to see the entries, including winners and runners-up.

Happy snapping!
