Summer is here, and lots of Greeks living abroad are returning home for a quick (or sometimes extended) vacation. Will you be visiting your place of origin, revisiting your favourite summer destination or exploring something new?
As we did with our Windows of the world album, we are asking the members of our global community to contribute their photo stories from Greek summer 2016. Beaches, mountains, landmarks, sunsets, delicacies and happy moments with or without good company; all captured from your unique point of view.
What can you tell us about the place where the photo was taken? What is the special summer memory you would like to share with others? What are your tips to anyone else who wishes to visit the same destination? What are your feelings on being away from Greece for most of the time? Don’t forget to include your first name and the place you live abroad.
All you need to do is upload your picture, together with a short story as a caption. Alternatively, you can post your photo as a comment on our Facebook page, send us a PM, mention us on Twitter, as well as tag newdiaspora on Instagram (or simply use the #NewDiaspora hashtag).
In a sense, Your Very Own Greek Summer is a crowd-sourced tourism campaign created exclusively by Greeks living abroad; people who know certain parts of Greece very well, and who also care to share the beauty and fun of summer holidays in Greece.
Deadline for submissions: August 31, 2016 (but feel free to submit your photos during the entire summer period).
