Join in the fun and enter competition
The contest challenges all to give their knowledge of Polish heritage a test by identifying images on the new cover of the "Do You Know Poland?" booklet.
Wrapped in a white-and-red banner that forms the outline of Poland, a patchwork of iconic images on the cover shows some of Poland’s most famous natives as well as some fabled events, places and relics making up the fabric in the story of Poland and its people.
The best way to see the enlarged version of the image is to download the booklet and use the Adobe Reader size controls.
There are no prizes in this contest other than the pride of excelling in knowledge of Polish heritage and publicized recognition for winning the contest.
Winners will be announced in the national PAC newsletter and various websites.
The competition entry should include a short description of each image in the mosaic, starting at the 11 o’clock position and moving clockwise from outer edge to the center.
Some of the images have multiple connotations, so to maximize your score, include keywords referring to various levels of meaning or significance you can identify.
For example, if an image shows a well-known painting of a famous person, identify the painter and the painting's title (plus any relevant factual information) in addition to the name of the portrayed individual and his/her accomplishment(s) or reason(s) for fame.
Entries from any country will be accepted
but they must be submitted in English or Polish.
