In order to participate, the author is obliged to publish photographs on the social media platform Instagram by using the following three hashtags in the description: #destinationsarajevo, #mojesarajevo and #mysarajevo.

Authors participating in the contest may submit photos that have been taken between the period August 1, 2018 and September 9, 2019.

The same author may submit multiple entries.

Citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as foreign citizens who live in Sarajevo or are staying in the BiH capital from August 1, 2018 to September 9, 2019, are free to participate in the contest.

Photographs submitted for entry shall remain the property of the Sarajevo Navigator Foundation, which may use them to promote Destination Sarajevo, without providing any additional compensation; while also promising, whenever possible, to give credit to the author of a photograph every time it is used.

The organizer guarantees that the photographs will not, under any conditions, be sold.

Should the organizer determine that an irregularity has occurred, or that another author’s work has been stolen, the participating author will be disqualified from the remainder of the selection process, or, in the event that an award has been given, it will be revoked and compensation for damages will be sought.

Members of the jury and members of the Sarajevo Navigator editorial staff are prohibited from participating in the contest.
