DEADLINE: Sun. 8th of May 2016

FlyersFor its 6th edition, the international photo contest of Fondation Alliance Française returns with the theme “Objectif sport !”

Any sport is governed by specific rules and customs integral to the culture of a country or community; it also plays a strong social role in the current and traditional societies.

Participants throughout the world are invited to capture an image which, according to them, depicts the best sporting activity (all sports can be depicted as well as peculiarities of the training)

Thus, through the lens of photography, the participants will convey essential values in this activity: tolerance, openness, social inclusion and team cohesion.

Congratulations to Nilanjan Majumdar, he will now get a chance to exhibit his photos all over the world and to go to Paris!
