On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Expo 2010 Shanghai, the World Expo Museum has launched a call for all those involved in the World Expo to share their photos of the event.
The shared photos will be in the running to feature in a commemorative image exhibition set to open in October 2020 that will celebrate all the participants, staff, volunteers, visitors and citizens who participated in Expo 2010 Shanghai. The exhibition will seek to immortalise the memory of Expo 2010 by showcasing all the different people and stories that helped make the event such a tremendous success.
A jury appointed by the World Expo Museum will select the pictures to be included in the exhibition and all those featured will receive a certificate of honour.
The exhibition forms part of a series of events taking place this year to mark a decade since Expo 2010, with other activities including an online AI programme allowing users to ‘become’ an Expo volunteer, a special Expo memorial stamp, numerous media reports and a special video production “See the World”.
The Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) is the intergovernmental organisation in charge of overseeing and regulating World Expos, Specialised Expos, Horticultural Expos and the Triennale di Milano.
