GRAND CASE, St. Martin – People of all ages are invited to showcase St. Martin’s heritage, and their talent, in the 2016 Heritage Photo Contest, now officially open for entries. The annual Heritage Photo Contest and Exhibition was developed by the Les Fruits de Mer Association to give tourists and residents alike an opportunity to celebrate art created here on the island, and to engage residents – especially kids – in thinking about their heritage.
The theme of this year’s contest is The Spirit of St. Martin. It was selected to inspire entrants to explore the many aspects of nature, history, people and culture that make the island unique.
“We all instinctively know that St. Martin has its own spirit,” explained Les Fruits de Mer co-founder Mark Yokoyama. “And although we all feel it, it’s something different to each of us. We hope that expressing it visually through photography will be a way to capture and share it.”
