GUIDELINES AND RULES

FOR PHOTO CONTEST AND EXHIBITION


2014/2015



SECTION 1: CONTEST THEME AND PURPOSE

Wish to experience the feeling of inter-cultural sharing and collective
achievement? This contest could be for you! The contest is open to any person or
group of persons interested in discovering cultures. Registration is open from 1
November 2014 and the deadline for entries is September 5th 2015. The
theme of the contest is:

"TRAVELS TO FRANCE AND ROMANIA, CROSS-CULTURAL IMPRESSIONS"

You have travelled and stayed in Romania or France with a camera as an
amateur. You select 3 (maximum) photos for submission. You are welcome to
share (or not) short texts (5 lines maximum) or captions.

Your photos reveal particularities that have captured your imagination and
appreciation in the country to which you have travelled (France or Romania) or
contrasts with other cultures you know.

The contest is open to people visiting one or the other of these countries for a
limited or indefinite period of time. The spirit of the competition is to open our
eyes to different perceptions from one traveller and from one culture to another.

Members of the Rhne Roumanie Association serve on the Photo Contest jury
and will select photos to be exhibited in a photo slide show during an exhibition
to be organized by the Rhne Roumanie Association in Lyon, France in October
2015.

Rhne Roumanie will exhibit the photographs in a collective spirit and in
appreciation of the cultural diversity proposed and represented by the travellers.
The selected photos will be used for the promotion of cross-cultural relations and
not for monetary profits.
