You must have seen this slogan: “Not inheritance but elbow grease” behind the lorries in the intercity highways. The money earned by elbow grease is regarded as holy in Anatolia. It is a source of pride for mothers. Every square meter of this country, from east to west, from north to south, has been cultivated through hard work, patience and self-sacrifice. The elbow grease has been the abundance and the future of our people for centuries.

The first “Albaraka Türk Elbow Grease Photograph” that was held in 2007 was shown great interest. It was very difficult to choose the photographs to be rewarded among about 2000 photographs that were very valuable. In our opinion, all of them deserved to come first when the time and effort spent are taken into consideration.

Albaraka Türk, the first participation bank of Turkey, has been working hard since 1985 in order to increase the abundance in this country and to utilize the elbow grease of the people without being wasted. We are aware of the value of the hard-earned money and the burden it lays on us.

Along with our customer-focused banking activities, we aimed to make the values of our country live and transfer them to future generations with the social and cultural activities that we lead and support. Albaraka Türk Participation Bank wants to be with the people of our country in every field of life instead of becoming a corporation dealing with only banking activities and developing only in this field. We believe that to empathize with the people of this country, support them when they have hard times, share their happiness should be the first aim of every company that operates in this country.

We would like to thank all of our friends, photographers and especially jury members, who supported us with their works of art, elbow grease and who contributed to realize the organization.
