Anadolu Agency’s deputy director-general paid a visit Monday to Feridun Sinirlioglu, Turkey’s UN ambassador, in New York.

Presiding over the opening of the third exhibition of the 2018 Istanbul Photo Awards, which was organized by Anadolu Agency at the UN headquarters, Mustafa Ozkaya visited the ambassador in his office.

Sinirlioglu praised the event, saying he was “proud” that such a successful exhibition was being regularly organized at the UN’s New York headquarters.

Ozkaya thanked the ambassador for his office’s support and sponsorship of the program.

The exhibition will run until Nov. 2.

This year’s exhibition was previously held in Istanbul and Ankara.

Roughly 37,000 photos from 125 countries were entered in the contest, which was sponsored by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, Turkish Airlines and the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA), with 27 photographers from 22 countries receiving awards.

All winning photos are available on and professional photographers can apply for next year’s contest on the same website from Nov. 1, 2018 to Jan. 31, 2019.
