Romarox Tourism Photo Competition.

Who We Are

Our Belief. Our Pursuit. Our Goal

Romarox Tourism Photo Competition is the first and largest national tourism photo competition endorsed by Chief Edem Duke, the former Minister of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation in 2012.
RTPC strives to engage the Nigerian population to appreciate and connect with her environment, in an effort to elicit domestic and international interests as it pertains to tourism in Nigeria. We believe in the beauty, originality and depth of our Fatherland. Though we have been scathed by ethnicity, religion and violence, we are a people of peace and we spread the message of love and hope everywhere we go!
But this time, we want people to come to us, as A visit to Nigeria is the ultimate experience.  Blessed with over 250 ethnic groups, languages and culture, we want to position Nigeria as the go-to-place for tourism in Africa and the world at large.
Not only that, we are concerned about passing down the values of our deep heritage of love and brotherliness to the downtrodden, the less privileged and the marginalized people amongst us through our skills empowerment projects aimed at improving their socio-economic well-being.
