The deadline for the selfie contest of 2nd European Games Minsk 2019 has been extended to February 25, due to the high interest received so far.
Participants are encouraged to take a photo of themselves in front of a sporting venue or while taking part in a sporting activity, uploading it using the hashtag #Minsk2019.
So far, photos have been uploaded from countries such as China, the United Kingdom, the United States, Russia, Canada, Germany, Pakistan, Finland, Ukraine, Bangladesh, Algeria, Nigeria, Vietnam and Tajikistan.
The selfie contest, being run by Minsk European Games Organising Committee (MEGOC) in conjunction with Radio Belarus, had been due to close on 31 December 2018. The original deadline announced when the competition was launched last April was the end of October 2018.
After February, the second stage of the contest is due to take place where the photographs that passed the jury selection will be voted on. Three winners from the 10 most popular photographs will be picked by a jury and will receive tickets for the European Games, which will be held in the Belarus capital from 21-30 June 2019, as well as merchandise and a certificate.
