JerusaLENS – The Jubilee Exhibition photography challenge E-mail

The “JerusaLENS International Photography Exhibition” opened at the Ammunition Hill Conference Center in Jerusalem in June. The top 100 photographs from the JerusaLENS international photography competition are being exhibited until 6 August. Entrance to the exhibition is free.

The spectacular photos were submitted to “JerusaLENS, the Jerusalem Photography Challenge”, which took place on the international photography competition website GuruShots. The Challenge honours the jubilee year of the Six Day War at Ammunition Hill, where some of the most bitter battles for the liberation of Jerusalem were fought exactly 50 years ago. It has become the largest collection of photographs of Jerusalem on the web.

The Challenge was initiated by Ammunition Hill with the support of the Jewish National Fund (JNF), JNF-USA, the Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Ministry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Tourism. Photographers from all over the world were invited to upload photographs of Jerusalem, from any time and on any subject.

Some 14,500 photographs from 84 countries were uploaded within one-and-a-half months, and received 2.4 million votes, a record number for World Cities challenges on the GuruShots site, more photos and votes than Paris, New York and London.
