An exhibition of finalists from the photo contest "Belarus and China through My Eyes" is on display in the library’s circular corridor, 3rd floor, from 6 to 12 April.
The exhibition is organized by the National Library of Belarus, the Education Department of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China to the Republic of Belarus, the Belarusian National Technical University and the BSTU Confucius Institute for Science and Technology, with the support of the republican festival of modern Christian culture "Blagovest".
This unusual photo project is the result of mutual interest in the cultural heritage of the Celestial Empire in Belarus and the Belarusian culture in China.
The contest "Belarus and China through My Eyes" aroused great interest among amateur photographers and professionals, highlighting the interaction of cultures of different countries and nations. More than 140 people took part in the competition: students of the Confucius Institute, university students from the two countries, employees of joint Belarusian-Chinese companies, as well as pupils who study the Chinese language.
Of the four hundred photos sent, the contest jury and the organizing committee selected one hundred finalists in five categories: "The Spirit of Friendship and Cooperation", "Human. Family. Society", "Culture and Tradition", "Architecture. Sights” and “Nature”.
The exposition gives an opportunity to get acquainted with the best photos, and also to take part in voting for the prize of audience sympathy.
The summing-up of the competition and award ceremony will be held on April 12th, at 15.00, in the Labyrinth Gallery of the National Library of Belarus.
