In summer 2017, a photographic contest will take place where Estonians are invited to capture their impressions of Finland and Finns are encouraged to express their understanding of Estonia through images.
Everybody is invited to take part! Anything can be photographed, including nature, people, things, or events. The images may be accompanied by a story, but they could also speak for themselves.
The photographs will be shared on social media with special hashtags: #soomehetk for Estonians’ pictures of Finland, and #vironhetki for the Finnish idea of their neighbours.
Prizes will be awarded for the best photographs.
An exhibition in Tallinn and Helsinki
Juries from Estonia and Finland will both select 50 pictures to feature in an exhibition called “100 Moments”. The joint exhibition of these close neighbours will reflect the ways the two countries see each other.
Viru Keskus, Tallinn, 3 to 19 November 2017
Sanomatalo, Helsinki, 6 to 19 November 2017
The contest is organised by the Finnish Institute in Estonia in cooperation with the Postimees and Helsingin Sanomat newspapers.
