Farang-only photo contest offers foreign residents a prize of 20,000 baht for Thai-centric pics

A photo contest announced by the government is calling for gorgeous, original photos evocative of life in Thailand and taken by foreigners living here.

The contest ingeniously named “Thailand in your mind,” is open to all non-Thais who are legally living in Thailand.

The Government Public Relations Department in Chiang Mai announced that the theme is “Thailand: Stability, Prosperity, and Sustainability.” The contest is designed to boost Thailand’s image and “Thainess” across the globe.

The move comes after a bunch a bad press regarding Thailand has hit the tourism industry pretty hard. Hopefully with the right publicity, Thailand, with the help of the foreigners living here, will be able to regain some of it’s popularity and be able to show why it became such a popular tourist destination in the first place.

The winning photos will likely be used extensively by the government. Feel free to enter your photo here by May 31. Finalists will have their photos posted for public voting on June 15 and voting will end on July 15.

The winner will receive an award of THB20,000, a trophy, and a certificate. The first, second, and third runners-up will receive awards of THB15,000, THB10,000, and THB5,000, respectively.

    In other words, the authorities now want foreigners to follow in line with Thai’s to lie to and mislead potential tourists.
    Maybe I will send in some photograph’s of the inordinate amounts of litter that are strewn everywhere, rats on the beaches, packs of stray dogs, impassable pavements due to inconsiderate and ignorant drivers and business owners. Maybe they would like some video footage of all the dangerous driving from both private and public transport vehicles? Or a bit of gang violence? Or a jet ski scam? Or a scam from a dishonest and corrupt official?
    I had better stop here, this list could become endless.

      Throw in a snapshot of a tourist being kicked in the head by a pack of feral Thai mutts over a perceived sleight to their honour.

      • Ken Anderson

        Looking at another of today’s articles, they already have available video footage of some brain dead scumbag shooting a gun in a busy street. Why do they need this ridiculous competition? That should be all they need in order to demonstrate around the world what Thailand is really like.

        How about a nice 10×8 of a bloke in a wheelchair being beaten by ten Thais for a bit of honest promotion?

        • Troll Killer

          You must drive on by because nobody wants to sit anywhere near you.
          You are the main reason bars go out of business, and rice farmers daughters quit and go back to the village.
          Go have another crappy 7-11 Cheers beer and a hot dog you cheap miser.
          There might even be a half eaten sandwich in the trash there for you if you dig down deep enough.

          • Gumble.

        • Troll Killer

          Dumble, Ken is displaying the total package here. What is your problem?
          I suppose you would rather post more interesting rear end views to see, such as your prolapse collection from your medical file.

        • Shancy Mancy

          crumble prefers to be looking at a blank wall as he’s being bumholed, i normally shove his head into a trash can and he’s never complained about that x

      • Ken Anderson
