ADB launches Instagram photo contest in Mekong Subregion

Le Anh

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) on January 9 launched a photo contest on Instagram to showcase development in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) and demonstrate how a focus on increased regional cooperation and integration can improve people’s lives.

The online photo contest, which will be held using the hashtag #GMS25, is part of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the GMS Program.

The GMS countries are Cambodia, China (specifically Yunnan Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region), Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.

“As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the GMS, we would like to take stock of the achievements of the regional cooperation and give a clear image of how it changed the lives of the people living along the Mekong for the better,” said Cuong Minh Nguyen, an ADB Principal Regional Cooperation specialist and Unit Head of the GMS Program.

The contest is open to nonprofessional photographers, of any age from ADB’s member countries. Images must be original and taken personally by the photographer, not previously published, and showcase daily life in the subregion and how lives have changed in the last 25 years. Contestants can submit as many photos as they like.

To enter the contest, post the photograph on your Instagram account using the hashtag #GMS25 and tag @ADB_HQ. Photos can be posted between January 8 and February 9. Winners will be announced on February 20.

First prize will be US$500, second prize US$200, and third prize US$100. Winners will be judged on the merit of their content or on the number of Instagram likes.
