The focus of an international photography competition for young people aged 14 to 19, called Pristihnutí pri čítaní / Caught Reading, is to photograph Slovaks and Poles reading in public spaces. The competition, with a September 20 deadline, is being organised by the Regional Library in Žilina and the Ksianzica Beskidzka in Bialsko-Biala.

The coordinator of cultural and educational activities in the Žilina library, Jana Štefancová, informed the TASR newswire that the participants are encouraged to hand in 1 to 3 black-and-white or colour printed photographs sized 15 x 21 centimetres (with the consent of the parents of underage children).
