Transcarpathians are invited to photograph "50 shades of pink"

Sakura is one of the main tourist highlights of Uzhgorod. The city looks the most attractive with these flowering trees which do not give fruit after their luxurious pink flowers. Their "fruit" is the joy and emotion of those who contemplate this beauty for two to three weeks - a short period of cherry blossom. Through the whim of nature, it so happened that this year, sakura blossomed almost one month ahead of the "scheduled" period.   This year, when tourists arrive to Uzhgorod en masse - late April to early May, sakura will have already finished blossoming. 

Therefore, the Holiday corporation "Ne ponyal" and the "Mustard Seed" lane decided to capture the beauty of the flowers in photos to show to visitors of the city. We announce a photo contest that will culminate in the exhibition titled "50 shades of pink." Anyone can participate in the contest - both professional photographers and amateurs.


1) Photos submitted to the contest must be related to sakura. It can be flowers, trees, people who are photographed on a background of trees, portraits against the backdrop of sakura and similar pictures. The theme of photos is sakura and its bloom.

2) Each participant may submit up to three photos. Photos shall be submitted as digital images measuring 30 x 45 cm, 300 dpi.

3) Pictures shall be sent to the email address [email protected], marked "Photo Contest". The letter must specify the author's name and contact phone number.

4) The deadline for accepting photos for the contest is 21 of April.

After accepting photos, the jury will select the 24 best works to be printed at the expense of the organizers and displayed in the photo gallery of the "Mustard Seed" lane. The opening of the exhibition titled "50 shades of pink" is scheduled for April 25. It will run for at least several weeks. However, as early as the opening day, authors of the best photos will receive prizes from partners of the photo contest: cafe "Tiramisu", candy store "Solodky Koshyk", the Holiday corporation "Ne ponyal" and others.  Take pictures and send them to us. We will show the beauty of the cherry blossom to those who have not seen it thriving and just save those memorable moments for Uzhgorod residents and visitors - the organizing committee of the competition and exhibition informed.
