First Impression on Tibet Photography Contest

The first Impression on Tibet Photography Contest was launched in Beijing. The contest was co-hosted by China Tibet Online and China Photographers Association. The competition also got support from the Tibet Photographers Association and Tibet Federation of Literary and Art Circles. From then, the collection of photos would be launched. The deadline of the collection would be September 12th, 2012. Those who were interested in taking photos and the professional photographers were welcomed to take part in the contest.

According to the introduction of the contest, the theme of the contest was the reflection of the natural ecology, societal life, colorful culture and historical change. The photos should reveal the changes in Tibet. The topics might include the economy, society, nature, sceneries, folk traditions, and historical cultures of Tibet. The works which would participate in the contest should reflect the characters, features of the topic as well as the inclusion of modern characteristics. The works of the photographers should reflect the high levels of the creators.

For the photography lovers, Tibet was a good choice for them to take materials. Tibet was a hot scenic place which attracted much tourism at home and abroad every year. Many foreign visitors who had been there and had taken the summer program in China said the place was a paradise on the earth for the clear air and broad view of sceneries.

The contest would set five levels of prizes which included the golden prize, the silver prize, the bronze prize, excellent prize and good prize. There would be 4 pieces that would win the gold prize, 8 pieces which would win the silver prize, 12 pieces which would win the bronze prize, 28 pieces that would win the excellent prize and 150 pieces that would win good prize. Those who had won the prizes would be exhibited in the National Center for the Performing Arts and some of the prize-wining pieces would participate in the overseas itinerant exhibition.

For many years, Tibet had appealed many visitors to travel there and many were attracted by the sceneries and lived there to learn Mandarin in China. The place had become an element of modern photography art. Photographers at home and abroad were fascinated by the plateau snow sceneries, folk customs and religious beliefs.
