“Manchar Souwar” is an annual photography contest designed for both amateurs and professionals. First launched by the Regie in 2016, as part of the Institution’s sustainable development strategy, this competition aims at supporting the artistic and cultural talents of the Lebanese youth, boosting their skills and shedding light on the social and economic side of agriculture.

Photography Theme 
For each edition, Manchar Souwar offers a different inspiring theme. The theme for 2018 revolves around “Women Tobacco Growers” as a tribute for their efforts and contribution to the sustainability of this agriculture.
