Conexión Américas Photo Contest Celebrates 'International Nashville'

  • Conexión Américas
Today local community advocacy group Conexión Américas announced a photo contest to showcase "international Nashville" — snapshots that reflect the diversity of cultures, traditions and people in Music City.

More from CA:

Conexión Américas seeks to discover and feature your international Nashville — from the annual Kurdish picnic, to the Quinceañera fiesta, to the Celebrate Nashville Cultural Event to el Día de los Muertos festivities.

Plus, we want to see the simple and intimate everyday moments of immigrant and international residents at work, worship, play and rest, and present the visual diversity of everything from a favorite food truck to a costume or place of business.

First prize in each of the three categories — people, places and things — is pretty sweet, too: two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines.

The deadline for uploading photos is June 30, and winning photos will comprise the first exhibit at the new Casa Azafrán Community Center set to open on Nolensville Pike in the fall. Full contest rules are here (PDF).
