RURITAGE Photo contest

Do you want to show the world what makes your rural area special? Help us see it the way you do!

Take part in the RURITAGE photo contest!

This photo contest is organised by ICLEI Europe in the framework of the RURITAGE project .

Our RURITAGE community is formed by many rural areas from all over the world. Many of them are hidden treasures with a unique identity that only locals have been lucky enough to enjoy… up to now!



The RURITAGE photo contest is a unique opportunity for local communities to showcase the potential of the natural and cultural heritage of their rural areas. We want to discover what it is like to see those areas from the local point of view and to understand what is distinctive and special about them.

While the overarching topic of the photo contest is the natural and cultural heritage of rural areas, participants can submit pictures that reflect one or several of the following aspects: nature, landscape, architecture, daily life, activities, food, traditions, challenges, Pilgrimage, Resilience, Landscape, Migration or Art & Festivals.

Submission of photos will be possible starting from 1 June to 31 October 2020.
