Invitation to Rural Lifestyle photo competition

The team of the Rural Lifestyle cooperation project of the Central Baltic Programme invites you to share the emotions captured in photos taken in Estonia, Latvia, Finland (Lohja and Åland) and Sweden (Söderhamn).

Participation is open to tourism service providers as well as tourists and all other interested parties, and we are looking for photos from professionals and amateur photographers. The theme is "My experiences of Rural Lifestyle tourism products". The aim of the photo competition is to spot, capture and thus promote the attractiveness of the regions' rural products to potential visitors.

The competition will take place from 21.10.-20.11.2022, the terms and conditions are available HERE.

As this is a photo competition, the best entries will also be rewarded by a jury, with each participating country offering a prize in the form of a tourism service. The best photos will be printed and distributed for tourism marketing purposes. In addition to the jury, the photos can be judged by anyone visiting the countryholidays.info website.
