Tirana Photo Festival 2019 kicked off here on Tuesday evening at the National Historical Museum with a photo exhibition and a contest with the theme of "promoting Albania's cultural and natural heritages through photography."

This year is the second edition of Tirana Photo Festival, a festival that celebrates the art of photography and promotes Albania. The festival is organized by Destination Management Organization (DMO) Albania based in Tirana and this year's event will take place from Oct. 8-15.

The DMO director and organizer of the festival, Eva Kushova, told Xinhua that while last year's festival focused on the promotion of the capital city Tirana, this year will focus on the promotion of the cultural and natural heritages of Albania.

"From May 1 to Sept. 1, photographers were invited to send their photos for the festival. More than 1,000 photos were accepted, and only 100 of them were chosen for the exhibition," Kushova said.

The curator of the exhibition Elton Koritari told Xinhua that this is an exhibition that puts together the best of all the findings of potential photographers in Albania.

During the week long festival, some workshops and photo walks will be held with the participation of some of the best photographers in Albania.
