Through a lens: Ganja introduces itself to Europe

July 30, 2015 - Future

On 10-16th of July, Ganja City (European Youth Capital 2016) gathered fifteen beginner-to-professional photographers from fifteen European countries for a six-day photo contest on “Ganja City through the Eyes of European Youth”. The contest was the first international projects from Ganja’s EYC2016 action plan, and was organised by the Ganja EYC team and supported by the Azerbaijan Youth Foundation and the Municipality’s Department of Youth and Sports. The event aimed to introduce Ganja EYC2016 to Europe.

Photographers came from Montenegro, Georgia, Finland, Lithuania, Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia, Ukraine, Greece, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Czech Republic, Portugal and Estonia, travelling to Ganja to take photos of the City and the City’s youth. During the project participants visited museums, cultural centres, music and dance schools, different towns and spent time with local people from Ganja. The jury, consisting of an experienced and well-known professional photographer, international experts in youth work and representatives of the Department of Youth and Sports, selected 50 of the best photos, which were then presented to the city’s inhabitants during a specially organised exhibition.

After returning to their home countries the participants will organise exhibitions of the 50 selected photos back in their cities. This will introduce Ganja as EYC 2016 to 15 European countries, including previous European Youth Capitals. The project received positive feedback from the participants. In general, more than 100 professional and beginner photographers applied to participate in the contest, of which 15 got selected for the trip. You can view some of their work below:
