MPJD and MEFA successfully conclude the competition "Colours of Albanians 2022"

The photography competition "Colours of Albanians" concluded today in Prishtina with a solemn ceremony with the awarding of 10 winning prizes.
The competition that opened in Albania, on 26 November, was concluded in Kosovo today, marking Kosovo's Independence Day.
Over 5 thousand photos were part of the competition, which for the first time was a joint organization between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora of Kosovo and the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs of Albania.
From the 9-week period, as long as the competition was open, the professional jury selected 10 winning photos from each category.
This year, the topic of CoA was "Identity Trace", divided then into categories for topics such as: Identity Portrait and Family, Culture and Art, Style and Fashion, Religious Coexistence, Traditions, Customs, Holidays, Landscape and Tourism, Architecture - Sports and Recreation.
Likewise, a special prize has been awarded to the diaspora, for the first time.

She stressed that this is the first joint project but not the last.
"Colours of Albanians is the first joint activity but it will not be the last, because our common goal within the implementation protocol that we have with the Albanian party is to bring closer our community, but at the same time our diaspora "through video landscapes, but also through the activities of both our ministries", said Gashi.
While the deputy minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs of Albania, Megi Fino, said that this activity united the colors of the two countries.
"The language of art and culture is what has united us today in this gallery of colors, in this library, despite the fact that our countries are connected by something even bigger", stressed Deputy Minister Fino.
