 The 33-nation The Group of Latin American and Caribbean Countries (GRULAC) has invited entries from Indians who are living in the country and have travelled to Latin American and Caribbean nations for the Third Edition of the Photography Contest, "My Latin-American and Caribbean Trip" MLCT 2018. 


According to Dr. Patricio Garcés Ramírez, Chargé d' Affaires a.i. Ecuador embassy in New Delhi, the themes of the photos should be of landscapes, people, monuments and others from the country or countries that they have visited. The participation is free. This year, participants can send up to five photographs (each at least 2 MB minimum) which they must have taken during their trips to Latin America and the Caribbean countries from 1 June, 2018. The last date for submission of photographs is 30 October 2018.


The e-mail should indicate the full name of the person, age and the site where the photograph/s were taken (city and country), contact information and a brief description of the photograph. Selfies and collages are not allowed.


The photographs will be evaluated by a committee comprising officials from the embassies of member countries, travel agents and travel journalists. Winners will be directly contacted through e-mail in the last week of November. The winning photographs will be exhibited in New Delhi and the first three winners will be awarded.


The previous editions of this contest received a very warm and enthusiastic reception by the Indian public. The collection of diversity and beauty captured in more than 100 photographs received in the last two years, not only demonstrates the growing interest of Indian tourists in the region, but also a passion for Latin America and the Caribbean that is being transmitted through their mesmerising digital images which have become attractive postcards of the natural, cultural and gastronomic riches that Latin America and the Caribbean countries have to offer.
