Photography competition

Starting in February and during the whole semester we will promote a photography competition open to all.

On a monthly basis, we will launch a competition related to a theme or to the month’s highlighted regions of France and you will be able to submit your photographies and hope to win exciting prizes. There will be a prize for the best monthly photograph and a global final prize.
