RAMOGE photo competition is underway

RAMOGE, the international cooperation agreement between Monaco, France and Italy, is hosting its biennial photo competition and this year it has a category for the “New Generation” and photos taken on mobile phones.

The international photo competition is now open to budding photographers with a love of the sea via the RAMOGE- L’Homme et la Mer (Man and the Sea) event as part of their awareness-raising programme.

From now until 30th September, photographers are invited to submit snaps showing the relationship between human activities and the Mediterranean in three categories for adults and one for young people under 21.

The three adult categories are Man and the Sea, RAMOGE Zone, dedicated to photos taken solely in the region between La Spezia and Marseille, and free style. The under-21s are free to submit any relevant photo under the theme Man and the Sea, the view of the New Generation, which allows for submissions taken on mobile phones, tablets or other digital devices.   

The contest is free and open to anyone, and each photographer can present up to four images.

This year’s jury is made up of a distinguished list including Ricardo Busi, President of the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP), Greg Lecoeur, “Nature Photographer of the Year” for National Geographic in 2016, and Sergio Pitamitz, “Environmental Photojournalist of the Year” for NPPA in 2016.

For each category, the winner will be awarded an FIAP medal, a €200 cash prize with an additional €100 cash prize going to the winner of the RAMOGE Zone theme. Second place winners will receive an FIAP medal and €150. Those in third will get an FIAP medal and €100.
