A photo by the Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry from project „Memofish“ was rewarded in a postcard competition, hosted by the European Commission. The postcard will be distributed all over Europe and will be part of the visual messages for the #EUinmyRegion campaign, which promotes the contribution of projects with EU financing for changing the cities and regions. The card can be seen at the webpage of the Interreg V-A Romania-Bulgaria program, which finances the project.
The awarded picture with a fisherman from Oltenitsa illustrates one of the older, but unforgettable ways of fishing - with a rectangular net, which is hung from a hanging structure. The picture was taken at the outfall of the Arges river. It was taken by Ventsislav Petkov. This is only one element from the hundreds of materials – pictures, film, video and audio recordings, texts, clips - which were created within the unique audiovisual study of the cultural heritage of the fisheries communities in the Bulgarian-Romanian region.
All products of the strudy are available at the website and can be used, free of charge, by all organisations and companies, which are encouraging regional tourism.
