Travel in Taipei--Photography and Video Contest Kicks off
Are you still immersed in playing the mobile game Pokémon Go? How long have you been so obsessed with your smartphones, leaving you no time to pay attention to the beautiful scenery in the surroundings?
To revive the relationship between the city and its dwellers, the Department of Information and Tourism (TPEDOIT) will be kicking off a video and photography competition. The agency invites the public to capture the diverse “faces” of Taipei.
Entitled “Shoot Your City,” the contest is accepting submissions (both photos and videos) via an online platform starting October 24. Themes range from Taipei’s urban landscape, tourist attractions, historical sites, culinary scenes, to cultural elements.
Participants should provide a title for their work, along with an introduction in Chinese. The first-place prize award for photography is NT$20,000; and the award for video entry winner is NT$50,000. Winner of the online popularity vote will receive a KODAK digital camera.
Please visit the activity website (http://ShootUrself.travel.taipei)(Chinese) or call (02)2913-553, extension 603, for more information.
