Cannabis Liberation Day 2017 photo selection: pick your favorite and win! PART 1

We needed some time to recover from the busiest, hottest and most international Cannabis Liberation Day to date. With an estimated 11.000 visitors from all over Europe, the US, Russia and Mexico it makes sense to present the official photo selection in English. We’ve turned it into a contest this year… 

Cannabis Liberation Day 2017 wouldn’t have been possible without our main sponsor Amsterdam Genetics, our official partners Sensi Seeds, PCN, Canna and De Baron and our supporters Azarius, Discover publisher, G0NZ0 Media, Koffie & Dromen, Mascotte, Epicurus Foundation, TGC Trading, The Stud and Othala. A big thank you to all of them and to the incredible Cannabis Liberation Day crew, consisting of 60 volunteers. They worked for the plant as never before…

Photo contest
This is how it works: the official Cannabis Liberation Day 2017 photo selection consists of 220 pictures by seven photographers that will be published on the VOC website in eight parts in the coming days. Every photo has a number in the caption. After the eighth and final part is published, you can mail the number of your favorite picture to We will pick a lucky winner who will receive two VIP tickets for next year’s 10th anniversary edition on June 10, 2018. Here’s part 1, with pictures taken on the Friday and Saturday before the event…
