HUANGLING, China, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Huangling Autumn Snapshot Photography Contest held its grand opening ceremony on Oct 15. The event was organized to acknowledge photographers and visitors, and aims to present the beauty of Huangling in an even, comprehensive and artistic way.
Shaiqiu, or "crop dry in mid-air", is a unique local folklore in Huangling with a long history. To better store crops, local residents sun-dry their harvests with other foods over roofs and racks all through the village, creating layers of vivid colors against the sober Hui-style architecture basked in the sunshine.
A wealth of attractive rewards is prepared for the competition, including vouchers for Huangling traditional accommodations, Hostel Flowers, a forest adventure, as well as a ticket set for Huangling and Shimen Mountain. All Works are displayed on the online presentation area: http://www.wyhl.cc/ykfw/wxws.html, and the selection of award-winners will be made based on the number of likes for each photo on the webpage. The competition will run from October 15th to December 21st, 2016, and final prizes will be announced before December 31st, 2016.
