A contest for professionals and amateurs

New edition of a photography contest that aims to invite both professional and amateur photographers to submit their images of the Mediterranean.

Photographs that, on the theme of the relationship between the sea and people, may deal with both what happens on its surface and what happens under its waters; from sports and professional nautical activities. That’s why MedFoto offers up to seven contest categories and, among them, one dedicated to images taken with mobile devices.

Contestants may submit up to 15 photographs distributed in any of the seven proposed categories: Landscape, Wildlife, Sports and Leisure, Sea Trades, Underwater, Conservation and Climate Change and With Mobile Phone.

A contest with cash prizes

Among all the candidates, more than 3,000 euros in cash prizes will given to the winners, in addition to four special prizes consisting of experiences in L’Escala. These will be for the best photographs taken within the geographical limits of l’Escala and the Costa Brava, the one presented by an author under 16 years of age and for the finalist image that obtains the most “Like” on the contest’s Instagram account. The popular vote to discover the winner of a sailing trip along the Costa Brava will take place between July 1 and 15.
