UNESCO 2023 Youth Eyes on the Silk Roads Photo Contest

UNESCO calls on young people around the world, aged 14 to 25 years old, to pick up their cameras and send their best photos to the 5th edition of our Youth Eyes on the Silk Roads contest

The UNESCO Youth Eyes on the Silk Roads contest is part of the Organization’s Silk Roads Programme and Social and Human Sciences Sector. It promotes photography as a tool for encouraging cultural interaction, helping build mutual understanding, and promoting peace amongst the people living in the regions connected by the Silk Roads.

This year, the themes are Architecture, Monuments, and Urbanism. Entries may focus on either of these, while concentrating on mutual influences shared by people along the Silk Roads. 

Photographers interested in exploring the theme of Architecture, Monuments, and Urbanism along the Silk Roads might capture the:

  • Grandeur of ancient and medieval cities along the Silk Roads, including their monumental citadels, temples, mosques, and palaces;
  • Internal architecture and designs of the historic monuments and places;
  • Mix of architectural styles and motifs found in the Silk Roads cities, reflects the diverse artistic influences across the region;
  • Modern cities and monuments that continue to reflect the legacy of the Silk Roads, such as towering skyscrapers and museums;
  • Impact of urbanism and architecture on the people and communities of the Silk Roads, from traditional neighbourhoods to modern urban sprawl;
  • Role of architecture and urbanism in promoting sustainable development and cultural heritage preservation along the Silk Roads, and its impact on local communities.
