Title: “In Front of the Mirror”

The inspiration for this theme is the pandemic, confinement, the day to day of this reality. We encourage you to express your thoughts through images. These times have made everyone self-reflective and now more than ever we have time to think about the world we live in, about our relationships with others and with nature, about the true necessities of life and about our inner worlds.
