Youth Lens on the Silk Roads
Best Photos from the International Silk Roads Photo Contest: 2nd Edition
This photo album, Youth Lens on the Silk Roads, is the outcome of the second edition of the international photo contest Youth Eyes on the Silk Roads, organized by UNESCO within the framework of its Silk Roads, and Management of Social Transformation (MOST) programmes. This ongoing initiative provides an excellent opportunity for young men and women from all over the world to visually capture their understanding and impressions of the shared heritage of the Silk Roads through the lens of their camera.
For this second edition, participants were invited to submit photographs that best capture the elements of the shared heritage of the Silk Roads through one or more of the three themes of "Gastronomy and Food Production", "Music and Dance" and "Traditional Sports and Games". The Selection Committee, composed of renowned international photographers, examined these submissions, selecting winners and runners-up from each of the age categories.
The resulting photo album gathers 76 outstanding photos that best encapsulate the spirit of the contest and showcase the diversity of young people’s perceptions of the Silk Roads' shared heritage.
Through this collection of images, one can travel the lengths of the Silk Roads, discover their rich and vibrant legacy, and gain a better understanding of their importance to daily life in the contemporary world.
