Yayasan Jantung Indonesia (Indonesian Heart Foundation) will host a photography contest starting Sunday.

Titled Yayasan Jantung Indonesia Photography Awards 2018, the competition is one of a series of events organized by the organization to commemorate World Heart Day, which is commemorated worldwide on Sept. 29.

The organization said in a statement that the contest was open for both locals and foreigners aged 15 years and above. It specifically invited foreign visitors to the 2018 Asian Games to participate.

The photography contest is divided into two categories: DSLR/Mirrorless camera and smartphone device. Participants are asked to submit sport-themed photos, which might be shots of Asian Games matches or people doing sports in any other context.
