On the initiative of the Eurasian Regional Center of Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF-ERC), the second edition of “Show Me Azerbaijan” project kicked off with a group of international bloggers representing USA, France, Spain, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Egypt and more than 10 countries in total.
The main goal of the project is to introduce international bloggers to the nature, cultural monuments and historical places of Karabakh, especially Shusha, as part of the visit to this city in connection with the declaration of this year as the “Year of Shusha” by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan (@show_me_azerbaijan – International Bloggers Shusha Camp), cultural heritage, monuments, and at the same time to acquaint them with the restoration and reconstruction works carried out after the liberation of this city from occupation, and finally to spread their impressions of the trip to the world.
It should be noted that, on the initiative of ICYF-ERC, similar events were successfully carried out last year. Thus, within the framework of the “Show Me Azerbaijan” project, 13 bloggers from 8 countries, including 3 well-known video bloggers from the USA and Algeria, visited the territories liberated from occupation and broadcasted their video reports about the settlements and historical monuments. More than seven million people watched these reports. One of the main goals of the project is to increase the number of video reports made by bloggers about Karabakh and the number of views of them by the end of this year.
