The 2nd International Underwater Photography Competition, PROTEUS 2021 published the results of the contest and I'm happy to see one of my photos in the exhibition.

This year the photos of the winners were selected from 475 photographs by 73 authors from 23 countries. This photography competition became a significant cultural event for Bulgaria. The final exhibition was in the art galleries of three of the largest cities in Bulgaria – Varna, Burgas and the capital Sofia.

My photo, which stood out, shows a Leopard anemone shrimp (Izucaris masudai) and I had taken it in the Philippines in the Cabilao island. A particularly demanding photography due to the strong currents and the morphology of the seabed but the rarity of the species was worth all the effort and the result was exceptional.

Unfortunately due to the complicated international situation related to Covid-19, i wasn’t able to visit the exibition but the organization committee published a VIDEO of the award ceremony and the exibition, which gives a nice virtual tour.
