The Lithuanian Community in Luxembourg invites everyone to participate to the photo competition 'Horizons of Luxembourg'.
It doesn't matter whether you take photos with an expensive camera or just your phone, if you are a professional photographer or just an amateur: everyone is cordially invited!
What you need to do is to send us up to 6 photographs which you took in Luxembourg or its surroundings not older than 5 years. If you do not have any but still would like to participate, just take some now! Most importantly, people should be apparent or implicit in them! Winning photographs will be printed as postcards and distributed free of charge.
Why is this needed? The sanitary crisis made many elderly and socially excluded people suffer even more; the Lithuanian Community in Luxembourg would like to seize the opportunity and encourage everyone to send a postcard with 'Horizons of Luxembourg' to a chosen person or care institution. The list of addresses will be available on the spot duringthe humanist photography exhibition at the Annexe22 in Esch-sur-Alzette on June 19-26, 2021.
If you agree, why wait? Just send us your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31, 2021. The winners whose photos are selected to become postcards will be contacted individually by email.
