Launched in June 2018, under the auspices of the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) by the RAMOGE Agreement, the photographic competition on the theme “Man and the Sea” has designated its laureates.

The jury, composed of a representative of the French Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, the Direction of Communication of the Monegasque Government and FIAP, deliberated and awarded, this year, the following prizes:

1st Prize: Caterina Bruzzone for his photo entitled “Questioni di Nervi”;
2nd Prize: Matei Cucu for his photo “Even cotylorhiza can be a model”;
3rd Prize: Jean Lou Ferretti for his photo “mid-air mid water Monaco”.

The RAMOGE agreement congratulates the laureates and thanks all the candidates for their participation and their creativity.

The award-winning photographs:

1st Prize: “The questions of Nervi” by Caterina Bruzzone – Nervi (Genoa Province)
This historic restaurant built in 1913, renovated in the 30’s, closed in 2012, left to the abandonment until today and currently Renovation course to accommodate a 4-star hotel, testifies to the waltz-hesitation between the sea and human occupation. This photo was chosen as the best shot for the beautiful effect it produces, in perfect coherence with the theme, and the excellent timing of the shooting.

2nd Prize: “Even cotylorhiza can be a model” Matei Cucu – Cape Taillat (south of the peninsula of Saint Tropez)

This picture shows that men return to the sea from time to time to pay tribute to him and listen to his stories, and that they happen to meet amazing characters, such as Cotylorhiza tuberculata, more commonly known as “jelly egg fried”. This photo is technically very successful and leaves a pleasant impression. One can only regret that, in the upper part, the fins were truncated.

3rd Prize: “Mid air mid-water Monaco” by Jean Lou Ferretti – Wall Coralligenous Oceanographic Museum of Monaco

The composition of this image is very balanced and responds perfectly to the theme by illustrating a junction point between the two worlds.
