It is an honour to receive this recognition (special mention in Entrepreneurs). Congrats to all the winners, the entries were outstanding! More of my work at:
A superb range of photographs, they certainly open one’s thoughts about life and the people of Cuba, well done.
I was thinking on entering but the winners humble me. Great photography with fine sensitivity!
I find it interesting that so many of the photos this year are black & white! The statements by the artists are also interesting and I commend winner Yaniel Tolentino for noting: “…100% of the prize money from this winning this category will be donated to this lady…” – the subject of his photo. Wonderful!
I will be eager to learn what the categories are for next year, the 10th annual contest.
