I'm really happy and grateful for the Nominee in the 3rd edition of "Fine Art Photography Awards 2017" (FAPA) in the photomanipulation category with my series "The traveler".
In 2017 Fine Art Photography Awards received 6335 submissions from 89 countries around the world. Winners were selected by highly acclaimed panel of international judges, including: Tim Franco, Nadia Dias, Liza Van der Stock, Matilde Gattoni, Amélie Labourdette, Valery Klamm and Pierre Abensur.
First time for me to participate in this well-known competition together with amazing artists and photographers from all over the world.
I'm not among the winners but I'm truly happy and satisfied about my nominee. Why? Because I've learned to live with passion and enthusiasm, to be grateful for everything that happens in my life, to celebrate every tiny personal and artistic achievement :-))
I always think and meditate about this quote from Arthur Ashe, I love it and it's very inspiring:
"Sucess is a journey, not a destination.
The doing is often more important than the outcome."
