Photo Safari
Help with the publishing of “National Photographic”. You will be our Photographers!

The latest issue of the magazine «National Photographic» with the subject «Greece as a destination» and a special edition on: Athens is delayed, because the team of photographers from the whole world hasn’t found yet the appropriate pictures.

The participants, divided into teams, are asked to use their imagination and create the two-page edition of the latest issue, collecting pictures from sights and other information, necessary for the presentation of the area.
During the safari, they will seek for spots from which they get useful information which will help them make the two-page edition. For example:
-Dance like the famous Greek Zorbas
-Make your own souvlaki and offer it to your colleagues
-The oldest shoemender’s belongs to …
-Take a picture of two members drawing Acropolis

At the same time they will have the chance to meet with each other to operate as a team and have the time of their lives! At the end of their «journalistic research» every team will be asked to present what they have found to the committee.

The three winning teams will be awarded!
