Photo contest Us & the Alps

What makes your life in the Alps special? Show us the most beautiful photo that you have taken in the Alps!

The photo contest is on from 13 February to 30 September 2017 and is part of the project EUSALP.

What is the photo contest about?

The Alpine Region has unique geographic and natural characteristics. It is therefore particularly affected by several of the challenges arising in the 21st century such as globalisation, demographic change, climate change, energy supply and increasing traffic. Further background information about the photo contest can be found here.

These challenges lead to the three categories of the contest:

Category 1: Environment, culture and tradition

Category 2: Labour, growth and innovation

Category 3: Mobility and energy


The goal of the photo contest is to capture current developments in these areas with impressive pictures.


More information on the prizes and terms and conditions can be found here.
