Since more than 200 photos were uploaded to our Photobank in the framework of our Holiday Contest, the deliberations required time.
We have the great pleasure to share with you our prize list, the three most beautiful photographs illustrating a monument, a historic site, a World Heritage property or a heritage professional in the field. Their photographers are our holiday contest winners.
In the catalogue, you will find publications by ICOMOS International but also International Scientific Committees and National Committees. Not all of them are for sale at the International Secretariat: some are to be purchased from the Committees themselves.
