On Monday 10 th October we attended the gala awards ceremony of the Edition 2016 from the biggest photo contest in the world, the Trierenberg Super Circuit in Linz, Austria.
The spectacular gala dinner held at the Design Center in Linz, hosted 500 people from several countries to attend the exhibition of award-winning works and the awards ceremony, welcoming also the 25th anniversary of the Super Circuit.
On this occasion I was there to pick up my seventh award in this prestigious photography festival, the Gold Medal in the special theme “Red”.
I had the honor of being one of the photographers interviewed at stage by the artistic director of the contest, Dr. Chris Hinterobermaier, while some of my works were projected on the screens of the Design Center.
It was a pleasure to share this night with excellent photographers from around the world as the great winner Elena Vizerskaya, Danny Wong, Roberto Soares-Gomes, Shao Hua Luo, Raymond Hoffmann, Stefan Thaler and many others with works of both stunning conceptual and technical quality, at the same time meeting lovely people and enjoying the excellent organization of the team of FotoForum Austria. One more year, thanks a lot!
