International Photo Contest on Hagia Sophia

ATHENS – The Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy (IAO) www.eiao.org, in the context of its activity for the promotion and preservation of the Christian Orthodox culture and in collaboration with the website OrthPhoto.net organizes the third in a row photography contest on the theme: “Hagia Sophia: The churches of the Wisdom of God in history and in the world” and invites all interested parties to participate.

Submissions are due May 31.

The purpose of the contest is to highlight the concept of the "Wisdom of God" in the modern world and to promote the churches that have been built in its honor for centuries.

The Church of the Holy Wisdom of God in the City of cities, Istanbul, the “Great Church,” the “Great Monastery,” is a unique monument with a universal character that "belongs to humanity and the world cultural heritage.” Hagia Sophia of Istanbul was the model, which was followed by the building of hundreds of churches until today, all over the Orthodox world dedicated to the Wisdom of God. This dynamic that the Wisdom of God, Jesus Christ, has in the Orthodox world, wishes to depict and to describe by the present photo contest.
