Capture a Financial Shot - a photo contest dedicated to the International Youth Day was held at the discretion of the National Bank of Georgia and financial education portal Finedu and with the support of Basisbank.

The contest acts to promote financial education among the young generation in interesting, cognitive ways. It is a nice way to raise financial education awareness of young people, to form responsible actions and improve attitudes, also to encourage reasonable financial behaviors of young people.

Interested participants were free to submit photos for the contest starting from August 12. About 100 works took part, from which 20 finalists were selected by the jury members. Contestants had the opportunity to present their works in person at the closing event on September 17.

All finalists of the competition were given branded commemorative gifts from Basisbank. The finalists were awarded with special certificates, and the six winners were given cash prizes.

"Promotion of financial education of the young generation is one of our priority areas. With the involvement of Basisbank, the International Youth Day was celebrated with innovative ideas and a photo contest, which acts to spark young generation’s interest and knowledge sharing in financial education issues. We believe this will help them make responsible financial decisions in the future,” Tamar Khaduri, Head of Basisbank’s Strategic Communication Department, said.
