RINI Albania Foundation is pleased to announce its first annual photo competition for young Albanians.  In 2018, the theme is tourism.  What are the best images of Albania that the world should see?  Why should visitors come to Albania?  What are you most proud about in Albania and want visitors to see?

This is your chance to share your vision, your pride, and your talents with photography!

How to Submit an Entry

This is an online photo competition only.  Upload your entries using the #albphoto2018 or by tagging Rini Albania on Instagram.  Only photos uploaded and tagged properly on Instagram will be judged. 


Two top winners will be chosen—one aged 13-17 years old and one aged 18-25 years old by a panel of Albanian photographers Alban Negollari, Gent Shkullaku, Leon Cino, and Kujtim Cashku. 

The winner aged 18-25 years old will receive a digital package from Digitalb Albania and the winner aged 13-17 years old will receive a package tour and adventure at Mt. Dajti.  The two honorable mention winners will win their choice of a cinematic portrait set or a bike tour at Mt. Dajti.
