Sardina Photosub Competition

Recommended Posts

This year we could dive in Sardina and Caleta six days whenever we wanted but had to download pictures everyday and could only shoot 60 jpg shots without deleting (360 total shots but if you miss one day you lose that download). Cameras were closed and then two security stickers were put on them so participants could not open them until the next download. This year the competition included 12 independent categories of which we won 7 plus a Best of Show Cuzco Award (this one voted by the participants) that we also won:

In the end we won 5.800 euros but decided (it was Luisa´s idea) to donate the 1.000 euros won with the BOS award to an NGO:

for underage, mistreated peruvian mothers, an NGO for which some friends have worked for.
