Taswira Contest
Because photography helps people to see

Taswira contest, as a photography competition, is a great way to find out if your images are up to scratch. By being part of the Taswira Contest, you can win valuable prizes but in case you will be within the three main winners, your contribution to the Taswira Contest still has incredible benefits. For example :

  • Notoriety
  • Experience
  • Networking
  • Feedbacks & Evalution

Every submitted photo will be evaluated and rated by a jury of experts. Otherwise, the public can see all the images uploaded to the Taswira contest so they can express their opinion and encourage candidates.

Taswira Contest is supported by the Culture Fund of the German Embassy in Tunisia, the project implemented by Gabès Action Association in collaboration with Taswira.net, Cinémas pour Tous Association, the National Chamber of Photographers and the Regional Commissariat of Cultural Affairs in Gabes.

Eligibility criteria
