The Alpine Convention launched the 11th edition of their photo contest, which is dedicated to “Contrasts in the Alps”. Although at first sight the Alps build a harmonious entity as a transnational mountain area, taking a second look there are a lot of differences to identify. A castle in the mountains stands quite in contrast to a traditional Alpine hut. Some Alpine spots are crowded, others are remote and solitary. Some landmarks are made of concrete, others built with sustainable materials.
The competition is open to everyone until 30 years old, who is living, studying, working or travelling in the Alps. Participation is possible exclusively through the submission of the online form, deadline is 31 August 2020. The contest is supported by the upcoming Swiss Presidency of the Alpine Convention, the CIPRA Youth Council and also the Yoalin-project. Some of the Yoalins will be part of the jury. They will select 13 pictures, which will illustrate the Alpine Convention calendar 2021.
