Photograhy competition with them: The sea and the people on the Mediterranean Sea.

Welcome to MedFoto, the first International photography competition dedicated to photography of the Mediterranean Sea!

MedFoto is a competition open to all aspects of the sea, from the landscape to the marine life; and from professional activities to nautical and sports activities; dedicated as much to what happens above water as underwater.

If you love the sea, this competition is for you!

This event is an initiative of  Fundació Alive and the Club Nàutic l’Escala.

The objectives of Medfoto are:

    • To value the relationship of people with the sea.
    • To increase awareness of the natural and landscape values of the sea.
    • To promote a responsible and respectful attitude of anyone for whom the sea, in one way or another, is at the centre of their activities.

Help us to spread the word about the beauty of the Mediterranean with your photographs and join us to make more responsible use of the marine environment!

We are looking for innovative and inspiring photographs, with views that document the beauty, the diversity of the Mediterranean Sea and its seascapes and coastal landscapes, and the relationship of men and women with the marine world in this part of the planet.

Registration for the competition is open to anyone, amateur or professional photographer, of any nationality. You may submit up to 15 photographs distributed in any of the  categories
