The jury of the 2015 photo contest has just announced its selection of the best photos that we have all been looking forward to see!
Thanks for your patience to all of those who participate in the blue wave.
We particularly want to thank Nathalie Baye our wonderful patron. She participated with emotion and motivation despite her very busy schedule.
Warm thanks to our jury who year after year has continued organizing the photo contest despite the heavy workload and the difficulties to meet.
To illustrate "Those who make wave", we received 300 photos of amateurs photographers from Albania, Algeria, Bosnia, Cyprus, Croatia, Egypt, Spain, France, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Montenegro, Libya, Palestine, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Turkey.
This year the choice was difficult: beyond the very high quality of some of the photos, we only kept those respecting the theme. The 2015 jury pre-selected 20 photos (click here to display) rather than 10 as usual. Warm congratulations to all the candidates for their excellent work.
Bravo to the prize winners
