Normally I do not take part in a photography contests, but this year I decided to give it a go. My main reason for submitting a selection of my photography work to 125live – Awards was mainly because the whole module of the contest looked very professionally organized and setup. Also there is very good opportunity for exposure for the shortlisted photographers.
My photograph of a “Man fishing at Havana’s harbor” from my Cuba-Travel Photography portfolio will take part in the exhibition that will take place from 9th till 20 of October at London’s Brick Lane Old Truman Brewery. Who may be the winner I still do not know, once they announce him or her, I will update this blog post.
