España. Portrait of a Country aims to create a contemporary, festive and attractive vision of our country through a photography contest and the publication of a book.

The call is open to all photography enthusiasts, who will be able to participate with their pictures on Instagram, win prizes and see their photographs included in the book.

This project will also feature images by the great contemporary Spanish photographers and personalities from the cultural scene.

The initiative is based on A Day in the Life of Spain, held in 1987 and which mobilised society as a whole to reflect the everyday life of a country that had recently joined modernity.

España. Portrait of a Country is, in short, an invitation to all citizens to share their personal view of our country.
