Having explored the nooks and crannies of Nigeria for over a decade, discovering and telling stories about the wealth of natural and cultural touristic potentials this country is endowed with, we have come to realize that we cannot tell this story alone. Beyond this, we even realized that we cannot tell the stories better than the locals can.
Therefore, we decided to launch a project called Unveil My Naija (#Unveilmynaija) which shall be featuring short stories and photos written by locals and people residing in cities, towns, villages and all the small communities spread across the Nigerian landmass. The stories and photos will celebrate the known and unknown, but diverse and abundant local culture and tourist attractions present in these small localities.
So, we hereby open the Naijatreks platform to Nigerians who wish to celebrate their home towns, cities or communities. We welcome short stories, photos, information etc. on those cultural and touristic features that make these communities special to their people. If you are among those interested in celebrating their cultural and touristic heritage, kindly submit your entries with your full name, email address, instagram and/or twitter handles (so that we can reference you as the source of the materials) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, tourism and culture covers all aspects of the outdoors, fashion, food, music, history etc.
We will begin to expect your entries.
