Tajikistan is both beautiful and culturally diverse and no wonder tourists from around the world strive to see and experience the natural beauty and traditions of the country: here you will find the real “Kingdom” of mountains, glaciers, endless pure rivers, lakes and hospitality of the locals.
In order to promote tourism in Tajikistan the Swiss Cooperation Office invites professional and amateur photographers to participate in the contest, which will result in selecting of a limited number of photos that shall reflect the numerous touristic features like nature, people, architecture, cultural and culinary traditions of Tajikistan. Priority in the selection of photos will be given to the local participants from Tajikistan and the neighbouring countries. We are convinced that all interested contestants have a great deal of such photos to offer, which would show what Tajikistan has in store for tourists. Photographs submitted are expected to vividly reflect Tajikistan from the touristic perspectives. Only images which are unretouched or with the minimum correction will be selected for the shortlist.
