And for my very first participation to the International Nature Photography Competition, organized during the Festival, one of my pictures has been selected in the Landscape category and will thus be shown during the Festival. Maybe I could even win a prize ? Who knows. Wait and see until October 17, when the awards are distributed.

If you love nature, if photography (or movies: a large part of the Festival is about nature documentaries) is of interest to you, or if you have children who love animals (the subject of most the exhibited pictures), I strongly advise you to go there and enjoy the beauty of the pictures that will be exhibited there. Mine include of course 🙂
And to help make it even better, access to all pictures exhibitions is free of charge.

The Festival takes place from October 10 to 19 in Acinapolis (Jambes, part of Namur) as well as in the city of Namur itself and a few neighbouring villages.
Practical details and full programme are available on the website of the festival (in French):

Preselected for the Collection RTBF/Canvas Collectie art competition!

This week-end, I participated to the preselection for the national art competition La Collection RTBF/Canvas Collectie, organized by RTBF and Canvas, two of the national televisions here in Belgium.
And I have had the pleasure (and surprise) of having one of my photographs from my Intrigantes series being selected!


The 160 preselected artworks (among about 1600 participating ones) from the province of Liège (where I entered the competition) are shown today during a one-day exhibition at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Liège. They will also be visible very soon on the competition website.
I entered the competition with three images from my Intrigantes series, Un autre monde commence ici, Rêverie, and Cuberdons. The image selected by the jury is Rêverie.
Will it be selected (26 among the 160 preselected from Liège) today by the national jury to go to the final selection that will be exhibited in Bozar in Brussels ? Wait and see!
