Photo Competition: Travels to Czechia!

The Embassy of the Czech Republic invites all from around the United States to submit a photo of their travels to the Czech Republic!

The photos should depict the beauty of Czechia, whether through its nature, architecture, culture, culinary delights, and/or modern marvels. They may feature the world-famous sights and historical wonders of Prague and other major cities or paths less traveled throughout the Czech countryside and villages.  They may incorporate people and their joy, amazement, nostalgia, or other emotions felt during their travels.

The Czech Embassy will collect the photographs in honor of Czech automobile racer Eliška Junková and her love of travel, ahead of the Czech Embassy’s Mutual Inspirations Festival 2023 – Eliška Junková.  Selected photographs will be exhibited at the Czech Embassy on May 13, 2023.

The Best Photos

The Embassy of the Czech Republic reserves the right to judge, select, and print the submitted photos, which it deems best within its discretion. The Embassy will display said best photos via an exhibition within its premises during the month of May 2023. The opening of the exhibition will be during the Embassy’s annual open house on Saturday, May 13, from 10am-4pm. Each year, nearly 4,000 people visit the Embassy’s open house. The Embassy will notify the authors of the photos of their selection to be in the exhibition.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic further reserves the right to publish and post any of the submitted photos on its website at www.mzv.cz/washington and www.mutualinspirations.org as well as the Embassy’s social media.
