After a difficult selection, we can now announce the 5 winners of the international photographic project contest “Educando la Mirada”, organized by the “Mercè Rodoreda” library in Castell-Platja d’Aro.
The winners of this 8th edition are:

We have received 334 projects from a total of 291 amateur and professional photographers from 37 countries.
As every year, a great variety of works was presented, from photojournalistic works to artistic and author projects. Curiously, this year over half of the authors have been from Spain, whereas other years we receive a higher participation of international authors.
We will personally contact the winners to manage the delivery of the prizes.
