SPCC Photo Competition 2018

created by Piktochart

The topic of this year Photo Competition is widely connected with two Scandinavian phenomena:

Allemansrätten & Friluftsliv

Allemansrätten, Allemannsretten or Jokamiehenoikeus in Finnish is a very old law in Scandinavia which gives you the right to roam freely - walk, cycle, ride, ski and camp – in the Scandinavian countryside. Such right has survived in the Nordics in the purest form, whereas in other countries land was gradually enclosed for private use and enjoyment. This right became also a main focus of a widely recognized Swedish tourist campaign which listed the entire country of Sweden on Airbnb.

Passion for nature is also reflected in Friluftsliv – which translates into open air living. It was brought to life in 1850s by the Norwegian playwright and poet, Henrik Ibsen, who used this term to describe the value of spending time in remote locations for spiritual and physical wellbeing.
Having in mind this beautiful tradition and heritage we want to get to know your experience and photo memories related to nature, sports & outdoor life in Scandinavia. What wild corners of Scandinavia have you visited? Has Scandinavian nature impressed you and in which way? How have you experienced friluftsliv and allemansrätten? Send us your pictures!
