I am really glad to announce that one of my images has got a first prize in the Natural Landscapes category in the 2010 edition of the “Memorial Maria Luisa” international nature photography contest. Besides the winner image, 2 of my images were finalist in the categories “Mountain Landscapes”, 1 in “Wildlife”, 1 in “Vegetal World” and 1 in “Natural Landscapes” category.
Founded 19 years ago, this contest has risen incredibly in popularity in the last decade, drawing every year more tens of thousands f0 images from the best professionals in the field of nature and mountain photography of over 50 countries in the world…
If I was really humbled and happy when I got the news…even more I was when I saw the names of the other winners I was rubbing shoulders with. Just take a look at the overall winner of this MML 2010 edition…yep, Bence Máté, the overall winner of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010…Man, that is a good performance! bravo, Bence!
Now, it is time to get down the rush of excitement and keep on doing what I like the most…shooting out there and experiencing the natural beauty! THAT is the real prize for this job…you bet!
