2nd International Photography Contest on “Economy and Crafts”

FIAP Gold Medal + TRY 20,000

As a field of production within the economy, crafts reflect the cultural values of a society through the diversity they offer and a common language of expression. Evolving around a master-apprentice relationship and passed down from generation to generation, crafts are built upon artisanship and hard work as well as on training. It is a field which contributes not only to the economy but also to the common culture that shapes a society.

In this context, the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey's International Photography Contest with the theme “Economy and Crafts” aims to support the photographic arts and photography artists, to strengthen national and international communication channels, to underscore the importance of crafts via the art of photography, and to raise and expand at the international level people's awareness about universal diversity through a focus on crafts in different societies.
