The CCPIT Hangzhou Committee teamed up with AIPPI China and the Hangzhou Federation of Literary and Art Circles to co-sponsor the "Hangzhou is Waiting for You" photography contest.
Entries were accepted over three months and a grand total of 1,572 submissions were received. After expert review, two first prizes, two second prizes, five third prizes, as well as 30 outstanding prizes and 60 finalists were selected from all the entries.
The works are currently on exhibition at the Hangzhou Citizen Center. AIPPI will also showcase more of these prize-winning pictures in 2021.
Some of these wonderful photos have been used in a set of flyers to promote the city and the forthcoming AIPPI World Congress there. You can download them now in Chinese or English. Also included on the last page is a 2021 calendar for you to print out and count down the days until Hangzhou is the centre of the IP world.
Many thanks to CCPIT Hangzhou Committee, AIPPI China and the Hangzhou Federation of Literary and Art Circles for organizing this very successful competition.
