More than 20 photojournalists from six countries are participating in an international photojournalism programme in Ulaanbaatar.
Entitled “Mongolia Today,” the programme is being co-organized by Mongolia’s national news agency Montsame, the United Association of Mongolian Photographers, the Council on Mongolian National Brands and the Ulaanbaatar City Administration.
The project aims to promote Mongolia and its history and traditions through photos to the world, to create a positive image of Mongolia and enrich foreign media’s photo archives with new photos of modern Mongolia.
During their one-week stay in Mongolia, the photojournalists representing China’s Xinhua, Russia’s TASS and RIA Novosti, Turkish Anadolu, Japan’s Tokyo News and South Korean Yonhap will take a photo tour from the capital to Tuv, Khentii and Dornod provinces.
Photographs of the tour will be displayed at an exhibition scheduled for 20 August.
