On 19 September in the cultural center “Boris Hristov” in Plovdiv opened an exhibition for this year’s competition Photo Academica “Yanka Kurkchieva“. The jury selected 77 shots for the final 21st edition of the National annual review of photographic art in Bulgaria. After opening of the exhibition, the ceremony for award winners in both racing categories took place. Two of my photographs reached the final: “Cold loneliness” – in category “Artistic photography” and “New life” in “Reporting photography”. I received a bronze medal, two diplomas, printing on 24 photographs and organization of my solo exhibition. The fact that the jury is the doyens in Bulgarian photography, makes these awards even more valuable for me.
This is my first photographic award. I will not hide that this makes me happy. Once again I realized that my nature and personal persistence, helped me in pursuing my dreams to the end. And the fact that I managed to raise my favourite hobby to the next level and to turn it to an art, pleases me enormously. I have always been seeking tо be above mediocrity with the things I have been doing. Thank you Photo Academica for the awards, for the future exhibition I was entitled to, and the admission as a member of Photo Academy “Yanka Kurkchieva“.
These are the finalists photographs:
