 The Second Hunan Province Foreigner Photo Contest Kicks off

 Background:

Hunan, the hometown of the Chinese Great Leader Chairman Mao, boasts splendid sceneries, profound culture with strong local characteristics and outstanding people. For years, Hunan has been adapting itself to the global arena. Increasingly internationalized Hunan has become one of the optimal options for overseas friends to come to travel, work, study and even live. 

 Last year, the First Hunan Province Foreigner Photo Contest(http://www.enghunan.gov.cn/SP/HunanPhotoContest/), as a part of the 2nd Online Hunan Culture Festival has been successfully organized. Photography lovers from more than 48 countries such as the US, France, UK, Egypt, Romania, Pakistan, South Africa and Thailand have joined in. Through the lenses, they got a better understanding of Hunan. They enriched their lives, explored distinctive charms of Hunan and even acted as an international ambassador to introduce Hunan’s beauty to the world.

 In this year, we organize the contest again for our overseas friends to express your feelings and views about Hunan. We believe that the event will greatly enhance your connection with Hunan and help the outside world know more about the Province. 

 We now sincerely welcome international friends both in China and overseas to join us with the Second Hunan Province Foreigner Photo Contest to capture a unique Hunan by your camera.

 The chosen photographs are to be displayed on multiple online platforms as well as in galleries throughout Changsha. Several activities will be held including photography vacations to scenic spots, key enterprises, restaurants of local cuisine throughout Hunan, photo exhibitions, awards ceremony.

 Application details and event updates will be shared via:
