“More Alike Than We Might Think:
Unpacking Linkages and Similarities between Thailand and Bangladesh”
on the 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between Thailand and Bangladesh
The Royal Thai Embassy in Dhaka is organizing a photography contest, titled “More Alike Than We Might Think: Unpacking Linkages and Similarities between Thailand and Bangladesh”, as part of the activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Bangladesh. It aims to promote deeper understanding between Thai and Bangladeshi peoples through photographs illustrating the two nations’ similarities in diverse aspects.
The Embassy welcomes photograph entries from Thai or Bangladeshi nationals, both as an individual or as duo, regardless of age and residence. Details as follows:
Interested contestants should submit two (2) photographs, one taken in Thailand and the other in Bangladesh, depicting linkages and similarities between the two countries in one chosen aspect, such as cuisine, vehicle, tourist attraction, lifestyle, arts and culture, local festival, tradition, and local product. Some ideas of pairing photographs include, for example, Thai New Year “Songkran” and Bengali New Year “Pohela Baishakh” celebrated every 14 April; Thai three-wheeler “Tuk Tuk” and Bangladesh “CNG Baby Taxi”; and Thai multi-purpose loincloth “Pha Khao Ma” and Bengali “Gamcha”, among others. Contestants may find inspiration from our short article series “Thailand in 50 Tales”, published on the Embassy’s Facebook every Thursday.
