Photography contest to commemorate World Tourism Day 2019

The contest seeks to find, through photography, the most unusual jobs, encountered by participants, throughout their travels.

Tourism is not only a great generator of direct and indirect employment, but also of creative, unusual, and unconventional jobs that surface thanks to the tourism sector.

By the same token, creating and guaranteeing equitable employment is essential to increasing social inclusion, peace, and security. Therein lays the potential and responsibility of tourism, as a sector, with a high human capital component.

In light of the above, within the framework of the World Tourism Day celebration, the Tourism and Hotel Administration Faculty, invites all Externado students and professors to participate in this contest.

Photographs must be submitted no later than August 30, 2019, to email: semillero.turismo@uexternado.edu.co. Only two photographs per person will be accepted.

Participants must submit the following information and follow the recommendations below:

· Student’s name

· Date and place of the photograph taken

· Description of the photo (75 words maximum)

· Size: 150-300 PPI

There must be coherence between the photo, description, and subject.

The awards ceremony will take place at the World Tourism Day main event, on September 27, 2019. The selected photographs will be exhibited at the Externado de Colombia University.

Note: Tourism and Hotel Administration students participating will receive 10 sports hours, if all requirements are met.

World Tourism Day: Tourism and employment, a better future for all.
