“A journey into the world of knowledge of our cultural heritage and traditions with the support of the photograph. A «book on the world» to establish an intercultural dialogue where each photographer/author becomes narrator of his daily life scrutinized, analyzed and described in all its many historical and evolutionary aspects. The pictures tell what we were and what we are: historic monuments, people, art, landscape, music, entertainment and local traditions. Through the photographs will be possible to strengthen the dialogue between peoples, all supported by a unique form of language: the emotion. So the images become the universal language of the «book on the world». All this will be part of baggage in the long path of life that every individual will always bring with him and that will fill each day with new and interesting emotions.” –Olimpia Niglio, Professor of Architectural Conservation, Kyoto University

On the occasion of the 18th General Assembly  ICOMOS 2014 (International Council on Monuments and Sites) to be held in Florence in November 2014, the Life Beyond Tourism® portal is promoting the photo contest:  “Cultural Snapshot!” Through the portal , the Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco® wants to gather images from all over the world that represent and compare different points of view on heritage and traditional knowledge. We want you to share your world through images. Feel free to use any camera that best represents you and your point of view (phone, digital camera, analog …).

The photo competition will close August 31, 2014 and the public will be able to vote until September 10,  2014. The results will be announced by September 30, 2014. The selected material should be sent for printing by  October 10, 2014.
