Christmas is a magical time of year to be visiting London. There are spectacular decorations everywhere and people are generally in a festive mood. The city comes to life during the holidays, with festive activities and cheery Christmas markets in every corner of the city. With Christmas decorations lining the main shopping streets, ice rinks in historic settings and fabulous theatre shows on the schedule, it’s the perfect time to celebrate all things merry and bright.
DISCOVER LONDON is an innovative project whose purpose is to make the participants live a professional experience for those who love photography and video making.
The main goal of the project is to valorise and promote the magic city of London, in UK, through photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs and not) from different places of the world.
