Photo Competition

It is essential that all photos are taken during a World Chaine Day event. The exact date this year is Saturday, April 23. However, as we have different time zones, it is acknowledged that the photo can be taken at an event during that weekend, i.e. between Friday evening April 22th and all day Sunday 24th.

Guideline and Rules

It is essential, that photos are taken during the 2023 World Chaîne Day (WCD) event weekend.


The photographer does not need to be a Chaîne member. However, we want to encourage members and amateur photographers by favouring them.


Photos will be selected from the social media feed material. The Panel of Judges will go through all images posted to Social Media Wall.


Postings made on Instagram and/or Twitter with the hashtags #chaineday, #worldchaineday  will appear on the wall.


Unfortunately Facebook is restricting connections with third party operators. Facebook postings will not appear to the Social Media Wall. You have to use Instagram or Twitter.


There’s no need to send or do anything additional to ensure participation in the competition. The Panel of Judges will go through all the photo material posted to the Social Media Wall during the WCD weekend.
