Borghi Photo Marathon 2018: photos and the award ceremony at the TTG in Rimini

Yesterday at the TTG Travel Experience, the main B2B tourism marketplace in Italy, was the award ceremony of the Borghi Photo Marathon 2018, a photo event organized by Yallers Italia in collaboration with Borghi Magazine, which saw photography enthusiasts working to capture the best of the colors and emotions of the selected villages.

The president of the Yallers Italia association, Giorgio Monticelli, presented the award ceremony showing all the spirit of the association and, congratulating all the collaborators and sponsors, "discovered" the photos and personally rewarded all the winners.

In each of the four chosen regions (Marche, Lazio, Puglia and Lombardy) the competition was held in 3 villages by region (CingoliMontecassiano and TreiaArpinoFerentino and VeroliPresicceSpecchia and Tricase;  Gardone RivieraGargnano and Tremosine sul Garda) and in each village the photographers had to follow a specific theme, as well as follow two themes for each region. Furthermore, for each region a prize was awarded as stage winner. These were the categories that were awarded yesterday, as well as a special prize by region based on the votes that the photos in the competition received on Instagram.

The race judges have done a great job by voting over 1800 photos based on three criteria, such as Creativity / Originality, Relevance to the theme and Quality / Technique Photographic. The winners of the regional awards were selected by adding the votes for each photo and not based on the relevance to a village.
