The main goal of the competition is the promotion of tourism around the ‘Coast of the Gods’ (Calabria – Vibo Valentia Province) by sharing all photos and videos involved in the competition.

We are aiming at making the world know those wonderful views and sunsets over Stromboli that can be admired from the beaches of Vibo Valentia Province and from the beautiful natural terraces of Monte Poro.
