Photography contest for cultural heritage 1 to 30 September 2018
The winner of the Finnish competition is Teuvo Salmenjoki with his photograph of Vaajakoski old power plant. Jury described the photo as
Gorgeous colours! A stylish image and technically it’s one of the best. A beautifully executed photo of a great view. The result isn’t a random snap but a carefully composed image.

The jury members were photographer and artist Mojo Erämetsä, graphic designer Tommi Kovala, rector Riitta Moisander, visiting professor Elina Paasonen, photographer Jussi Tiainen and photographer Soile Tirilä.
