World Tourism Day, which has been annually observed on September 27 since 1980, is celebrated in order to raise the awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism to the development of Nepal and its tourism destinations.
The energy, accessibility, water and tourism have been some of the topics tackled in the previous years and the theme for 2017 is “Sustainable Tourism—A Tool for Development”.
With this way, DFID Nepal, Nepal Tourism Board, and Samarth-NMDP jointly launched the World Tourism Day 2017 photo competition last week.
The photo competition aims to support more discussions around the importance sustainable tourism for Nepal. This discussion will help in creating the new ideas on the conservation and the preservation of the tourism destinations which will attract the national and the foreign tourists also.
This photo contest is open to all photographers and photo enthusiasts who can enter a maximum of three original images that justify the theme.
Each photo needs to be accompanied by a short caption describing where the photo was taken, when and why it represents the theme for the competition.
The organisers also have stated that the photographers with the winning images will get to choose between three domestic travel packages like Chitwan, Pokhara, Bardiya.
