This year’s edition of ImagOrbetello Photo Festival, which for seven years now has welcomed several masters of photography, has just ended and it has been an extraordinary one.
Among the exhibitions – James Whitlow Delano and Everyday Climate Change, Gianpaolo Conti, Umberto Verdoliva – and an intense meeting with Gianni Berengo Gardin, the 7th edition came to conclusion with the proclamation of winners of the competition, selected by the jury formed by our director Eolo Perfido, Fulvio Bugani, Camilla Ferrari, Mosé Franchi, José Ramos, Andrea Boccalini, Umberto Verdoliva, and Vieri Bottazzini.
Thanks to the precious cooperation of all the guests, starting from the members of the jury, who fully understood the spirit of our festival and helped it to grow.
And here the winners.
In the “Landscape” category: first place winner William Preite and second Enrico Raimondo, who won the third-place too, with a second photograph. The “Vieri Bottazzini Workshop Special Award” goes to Leonardo Mambrini. For “Street Photography”: first Liliana Ranalletta, then Massimiliano Faralli and third Mario Filabozzi. In the “Mobile” category: Davide Pitetti, Francesca Gernetti, and Massimo Alfano. In the “Portrait” category: Marco Tanfi, Giuseppe Gradella, and Giuseppe Cardoni. In the “Projects” category: Cristiano Morbidelli, Fabio Bonanno, and Federica Zucchini.
So the curtain falls, but the Imago machine is already set in motion for next year, towards an eighth edition made up of new guests, new exhibitions and new stories to tell.
