German office in Taipei holds World Cup football photo contest

Taipei, June 10 (CNA) The German office in Taipei on Thursday invited the Taiwan public to take part in a photography competition that will be held during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa June 11 to July 11.
Creative and interesting photos of scenes related to the World Cup may be submitted on the office's Web site during the one-month period, after which three photos will be selected for the top prizes, the Deutsches Institut Taipei said.
In addition, "we're encouraging football fans to cheer for the German team," said an official of the office. "I was impressed by the number of Taiwanese football fans who showed up at local bars to root for the German team in its 2002 World Cup semi-final against South Korea." People in Taiwan can watch the matches in this year's World Cup on TV at home, at pubs or other locations, the official said.
