Antalya, which has become lonely and silent from time to time during the corona process, actually gave its most beautiful photographs during this period. While the streets are calm, the parks are empty, the sea is still, and the city is sad, Antalya and 86 Travelers posed by hugging nature and participated in the competition by photographing Antalya.
After a meticulous work by the jury members, Yalçın Çiftçi’s ASPENDOS photograph was awarded the first prize for its successful representation of the richness of culture and history, including touristic elements, and shadows. Erdal Türkoğlu placed second with Kaputaş’s work, and Ozan Seyhan was the third with his night photo.
The Honorable Mention Award given in the name of Veteran Tourism Photographer Halil Tuncer, who we lost a short time ago, went to İbrahim Aktaş with his Mountain Village photograph.
We, as tourism professionals, would like to thank the young Antalya Lover of Generation Z, Barış Geçillioğlu, who is trying to keep Antalya on the agenda with a small, modest organization starting from a dream.
We wish success to see all the contestants who participated in the competition with their photographs and added color to Antalya in our next works…
