Affiche_Af_photoWithin the scope of 2016’s international sporting events, the Fondation Alliance Française organizes for the 6th occasion a photo contest, “Objectif Sport !” illustrating the theme of sports. Specific rules and customs, which are framing sport, are an integral part of countries’ culture. Also, sport plays a strong social part in modern as much as traditional society. Thus, participants throughout the world will put in image what, according to us, depicts the best sporting activities in their countries. So, thanks to photography, they will transmit main values of that discipline: tolerance, open-mindedness, social inclusion and team cohesion.

Please read the contest rules.
