VdGM Photo Contest 2016: call for submissions


VdGM Photo Contest 2016: “VdGM through my eyes”


Unfortunately the 2016 VdGM Photo Contest “VdGM through my eyes” gathered little participation, failing the goal of creating a memory album of VdGM events/meetings in 2016. Thus, we decided not to select any of the submitted photos and cancel the contest. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank those who submitted their photos.


Do you have outstanding photos that tell a compelling story about your participation in an event organized by the Vasco da Gama Movement in 2016?


This year the Vasco da Gama Movement is hosting the VdGM Photo Contest 2016 to recognize those beautiful images and inspiring stories. This is a great opportunity for us to showcase the work of some very talented artists (you!) – professional or amateur – and we’re excited to see VdGM through your eyes.


The contest will be open all year round. During that time our online audience will pick their favorite photos (Fan Favorites) by voting on Flickr. Remember to share, tweet, or email the link to the contest album on Flickr to your friends and peers in order to rack up more votes for a chance to win!

The grand winner will be selected from the Fan Favorites by a jury.


Along with the extraordinary group of volunteer jurors, we look forward to seeing your photographs and visual storytelling prowess!
