PHOCOS (Photo Contest Of SUN)

Civilization has its own meaning when it is interchanged rather than clashed. PHOCOS is a “Photo Contest Of SUN” and SUN continues to build on a legacy that connects people through cultural activities like PHOCOS.

PHOCOS aims to, through the medium of photograph, share "the Beauty of Diversity" existing along the Silk Road and to let people around the world realize how important and valuable it is to preserve and respect each indigenous culture by showcasing "Mutual Understanding" among the members of SUN. It’ll be a great honor of SUN if this event can be a starting point so that SUN could possibly form a never-failing source of realizing the peace of Silk Road area and the richness of mankind. We hope to make PHOCOS an annual event showcasing works by amateurs on different themes each year.

The comprehensive procedures for PHOCOS are progressed in this way. First, after receiving photos from applicants from all over the world, they are evaluated by people who are expert in photos. Second, the winner’s works are made into a brochure and it is shared by all over the world. PHOCOS marks the 5th anniversary in 2020 since 2016. In every General Assembly, It exhibits the works of winners and awards ceremony for PHOCOS.
