SPECIAL/Vintage photos and stories in Taiwan wanted
For foreign nationals who have visited Taiwan, there is a new and amazing opportunity to share with the world vintage photos that reflect unforgettable memories and tell heartwarming stories of their time in the country.
Taiwan+, an upcoming content platform, is looking for vintage photos taken in Taiwan that showcase the island nation's scenic spots, nature, landscapes, as well as festivals, customs, buildings, and -- most of all -- friendly people.
Taiwan+ is keen to develop a collection that archives these precious, nostalgic and fleeting moments that reminisce about the good old days. Therefore, all photos taken before 2000 are welcomed.
Please send your photos along with a short descriptive caption and the approximate date taken to firstname.lastname@example.org before Feb. 16, 2021.
The selected photos and stories may be featured in future exhibitions presented by Taiwan+.
Examples of photos and captions are included below for reference.
