As-Salt photo competition now open

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in partnership with the Greater As-Salt Municipality and Salt Development Corporation officially launched the As-Salt Tourism Photography Competition 2018. Photographers of all skill levels are welcome to participate and show how they can capture the spirit of As-Salt in a photo. The competition is sponsored by the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), Zain Jordan, and Archi-Arts Group in coordination with USAID BEST.

Anyone can take part by submitting a photo taken in As-Salt in August 2018 that relates to one of the following categories:

  1. People living and working in As-Salt
  2. Authentic foods of As-Salt
  3. Heritage and landscape of As-Salt

A panel of judges will select the top 40 photos and the public will have the final say in the winning photographs through a Facebook poll that will be open from September 10 to 23, 2018. The top winner from the final round will receive an ounce of gold from JTB and the three runners-up will take home Huawei P20 Pro cellphones from Zain Jordan. Those who submitted the top 40 photos will receive a give-away from Zain.

Put your photography skills to the test today! The deadline to submit a photo is August 31, 2018.  Note that photos submitted must be taken during the time of the competition or they will be disqualified. The winners will be announced on September 27, 2018. For more information click here.
