A photography competition highlighting the beauty of the Tibet autonomous region has just wrapped up in Beijing.

The Tibet in My Eyes photo contest presented 22 awards for photos and 20 for DV clips.

The contest, open to college students nationwide since July, hoped to document modern Tibet and foster Tibetan culture through still photos and vivid video clips. It received more than 1,000 submissions, the organizer said.

Zhang Yiyin, a graduate of Minzu University of China and the winner of the photography contest, said she thought Namtso, a mountain lake in Tibet, had a stunning sky.

“When I was in Tibet, I always felt how tiny we human beings are compared to powerful Mother Nature,” Zhang said.

The winning works were selected after a netizen poll and expert discussions.

Feng Ziming, a communication professor at Jinan University, said traveling in Tibet was inspirational.

“We need our young people to go out, to explore and to experience,” Feng said.

The contest was jointly sponsored by the China Intercontinental Communication Center, China Radio & TV Research Society, the TV and Journalism School of the Communication University of China and the Publicity Department of the Party Committee of Minzu University of China and co-hosted by Jinan University.
