THE 5-month “This Is Jinshan” competiton of photos, short films and writing has ended. Initiated by the Jinshan District Government, the contest received 188 articles, 2,689 photos and 42 short videos that capture the beauty of the southwestern district located by the Hangzhou Bay.

The photo package “Jinshan Within 12 Hours,” taken by Jinshan native Jiang Zhijuan, 25, a civil servant, won first prize. It displays the district’s varied scenery in different places and at different times of day — sunrise by the sea, the morning bell in Donglin Temple, the crowded sandy beach in the afternoon and the Jinshan New City soaked in the twilight.

“Jinshan is an ancient district in terms of its history, but it’s also emerging and modern,” Jiang says. “I originally planned to photograph 24 hours, but Chinese prefer 12 hours according to the lunar calendar.”

The best short film winner, “Shanghai’s Last Fishing Village,” unveils the historical twists and turns of the Jinshanzui Fishing Village by the sea.

The winning article, “One-Hour Dream,” reflects on the district’s evolution of different transport vehicles — bicycle, three-wheeler, electric-powered bike and car and then back to bike.
