”Photo Faktoria” Contest


Our Instagram photo contest


If you’re interested in photography or simply like capturing your experiences with a camera, our competition is perfect for you. Not only those who have already visited our settlement, but also those who have only seen it from a distance and have an Instagram account can take part in it.

The theme of the contest is Faktoria Handlowa, but how you decide to capture the settlement or your time spent here depends only on you. The only limitation is your imagination and creativity.

If you want not only to share your work with others but also win cool prizes, you have to follow those three simples steps:

  • follow our Instagram account – @faktoriahandlowa
  • post a photo, a video, a collage, or any other form of your creative expression which subject is associated with Faktoria Handlowa
  • tag your post with @faktoriahandlowa together with hashtags #faktoriahandlowa and #photofaktoria

Entering the contest is not limited in any way, you can take part in it as many times as you want. However, please remember that a new project should contribute with a fresh perspective.
