Awards Winning at the 13th International PELAGOS Festival in Rome.

PELAGOS Festival

I am really pleased to announce that I am among the winners of the 13th International PELAGOS Festival in Rome.

I received a very honorific e-mail from the festival Directors informing me about the award ceremony on Saturday the 26th of February and inviting me to participate.

I am really anxious to find out which of my photographs received the award, although I am quite sure about the winner because this Festival is focused on the health of Sea environment.
PELAGOS, in association with the World Festival of Underwater Picture of Antibes Juan-les-Pins, announces the International Sea Festival which represents a journey into the sea through numerous series of videos, photographs dedicated to the marine world.
This vast archive of audiovisual productions are intended to enhance public awareness around the sea and its health; among those numerous works emerge the outstanding documentary “The Cove”, winner of the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary.
Throughout its history, the Festival was attended by more than 5000 competitors, film and video makers and photographers, who shared with the artistic directors of the Festival, Pippo Cappellano e Marina Cappabianca (CAPMARSTUDIOS) the same passion for the sea, for its depth and for the life it hosts, aligned with their belief that documentaries contain an unmatched potential to give voice to unknown realities and raise awareness of the value of nature and the importance of its preservation.
