I decided to create this contest dedicated to the memory of my father (Visit the site here). The contest has been created with the idea of giving back to the photo community, with the purpose of helping and strengthening the winners´ career or passion. For him/her I would like to ask from the heart to those who decide to participate, that they respect the decisions taken, and I would like to thank you all for not negative comments about the final decisions in any form, or social platform. The reason I will take my time to interview those selected by jury, is to personally know the life of each candidate and to award the prize to those who can use it best. Never stop dreaming!
