Amazing winners of the Beloved Turku photo competition, part 2

Susanna | 1.2.2020

Rakas Turku (Beloved Turku) competition was a great success! During autumn 2019 we received amazing pictures around Turku region. People photographed historical sites, life in the hoods as well as moments in the nature. This blog post presents the second set of weekly winners.

Our photo competition was organized in Instagram and in Facebook by Know Your Hoods and a local newspaper Turkulainen. In addition, many local firms donated lovely prizes for the weekly winners. Early January 2020 everyone had a chance to vote for their favorites and the final winner was chosen from the three category winners. Thank you for all the partners and participants of the competition.

The competition was held weekly, every week with a new theme from August 21st until the end of the year 2019. Last week we presented the first 9 winners and now it’s time for the next 8.

The original post with comments about the winning photos is published only in Finnish. Change the language settings of Know Your Hoods into Finnish in order to read the whole article (or you can also try Google Translate).
