OPENING OF THE EXHIBITIONS

1. PHOTO EXHIBITION – A Sea of Possibilites
Selected photos from the photo contest

On the occasion of the first edition of aMORE Festival, we organized an international photographic contest that draws attention to the environmental, social and cultural significance of maritime ecosystems and the causes of their degradation, all with the aim of preservation.
The contest was open to all the photographers, both amateurs and professionals, regardless the photographic technique used.
The exhibition of selected materials and accompanying materials wishes to provide an insight into a wider spectrum of topics related to sea, highlighting the various confronted challenges.

2. MULTIMEDIA EXHIBITION – Where does the Sea begin?

Sea, as the perennial and inexhaustible inspiration, always invites the deep reflection on oneself and existence in general. Selected authors portray the different and more intimate images of sea, through different media.
