Picture This! Competition
The competition is closed now. See the winners in our blog.
Earlier this year, we published an exhibition featuring vintage postcards of beautiful cities, landscapes and regions across south-eastern Europe.
These postcards show us a nostalgic view of south-east Europe. We want to see what it’s like today.
Take part in our Picture This! Competition and share your pictures of Montenegro, Croatia, Albania and more.
Visit our exhibition to see exactly which places and landmarks we’re looking for in:
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
