The 2022 edition of the International Photography Contest - Douro Contemporary Heritage joins the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the inscription of the Alto Douro Wine Region on the World Heritage List, having the classified area by UNESCO as its geographical scope. 

The contest is open to all photographers, amateurs and professionals, national and foreign. Contestants must submit their photos to the contest between November 1st and December 1st, 2022.

The aim of this year's contest is to capture the changes/persistencies of this evolving and living landscape in its various aspects. In addition to capturing the landscape, the aim is also to feel, to go through the Douro through its people, its practices and the way they shape the wine-growing territory through a critical reading of the World Heritage status.

Understanding (possibly) unknown places of the territory and promoting a new look on photography are the main goals of this contest, which is part of the patronage agreement signed between the Douro Museum and EDP - Gestão da Produção de Energia S.A. 

The winning images of the contest will integrate the database "Visual Archives" of the Douro Museum, being the motto for an itinerant exhibition. 

All the information on how to enter the competition can be found in the Regulations.
