More than 600 images submitted

The jury of the competition, made up of five experts from the world of photography and the marine environment, was responsible for selecting these images from among the 600 entries received by the organisation.

Juvenil de Rap (Young Monkfish), by the photographer Xavier Salvador, was the winner of the exhibition and he sets the benchmark for this achievement in a competition that is already preparing its second edition. The overall winners, as well as those of the different proposed categories were announced on 31st July in a virtual event that took place by Zoom and which was attended by more than thirty people.

One goal, one commitment

The inaugural edition of MedFoto has also achieved its objective: to raise awareness of the environmental and human values of the Mediterranean Sea. A commitment made by the two organising entities, the Club Nàutic l’Escala and the Fundació Alive, which they have renewed thus giving the competition continuity.
