Nashville is a beautiful international mix of cultures, colors, languages and customs, and Conexión Américas is thrilled to showcase it all in a new photo competition titled “Capture the Spirit of International Nashville.”
Conexión Américas seeks to discover and feature your international Nashville — from the annual Kurdish picnic, to the Quinceañera fiesta, to the Celebrate Nashville Cultural Event to el Día de los Muertos festivities.
Plus, we want to see the simple and intimate everyday moments of immigrant and international residents at work, worship, play and rest, and present the visual diversity of everything from a favorite food truck to a costume or place of business.
Win Airline Tickets
The 1st place winner in each of the 3 categories (Person, Place, Object/Thing) will receive 2 round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines. Tickets valid only on Southwest-operated, published, scheduled service.
Why? We’re Celebrating a Decade!
Conexión Américas this year is celebrating its 10th anniversary of empowering Latino families in Tennessee, and we have seen huge demographic changes during a decade of work. We have seen great successes by so many, and also great challenges overcome.
Through this photographic collection of international Nashville we want to capture and celebrate the impact immigrants from all over the world have made in the community. (Fast facts: 1 in every 6 Nashvillians is foreign-born and 10% of the population is Hispanic.)

The winning photographs, and a collection of selected entries, will be the first art exhibit at the Casa Azafrán Community Center, Conexión Américas new offices.
Casa Azafrán, the gateway to Nashville’s most international district, is a $5 million nonprofit collaborative with offices for health services, counseling, education, plus a commercial community kitchen, meeting, event, culture and art spaces. Located at 2195 Nolensville Pike, Casa Azafrán is scheduled to open in the Fall 2012.
The photographs and artist bios also will be displayed in a 2013 exhibit at the Nashville International Airport and available for traveling exhibits to partner organizations in Middle Tennessee.
