#PicThisEurope: Terms and Conditions

Objavljeno 6.7.2017.

Competition alert! Have your photographs featured in a Europeana Collections exhibition.

Earlier this year, Europeana put on Picture this! Vintage postcards of Southeastern Europe, an exhibition featuring vintage postcards from countries that were part of the Collections of the South and East Europe in Europeana (CSEEE) project, which the National and University Library in Zagreb, as project coordinator, successfully realised in 2016 in collaboration with The European Library (TEL). This exhibition celebrates beautiful cities, landscapes, and regions across south-eastern Europe captured on old postcards from the collections of the European national libraries that were part of the CSEEE project.

These postcards show us a nostalgic view of south-east Europe. We want to see what the places presented through the exhibition look like today.

Visit the Picture This! exhibition to see exactly which places and landmarks Europeana is looking for. The countries featured are:

● Albania,
● Bosnia & Herzegovina,
● Croatia,
● Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia,
● Moldova,
● Montenegro,
● Serbia, and
● Slovenia.
