“A floresta fonte de vida” (The forest, source of life)


Wednesday has finally come and with it the exhibition of our photographs and video in the contest hosted by The Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation IP-RAM. It will be displayed at the Madeira shopping until the 2nd of April.



The contest was held in honor of the Commemoration of the International Day of Forests of 2018, to promote the Laurissilva da Madeira, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.

I participated with three pictures and also Nika, Lara and myself contributed a video titled “Terra” under the group name “Os très amigos” (Eng.: the three friends) for which we have gotten a prize! 🙂


The exhibition of the works was followed by the awards ceremony in which every participant received a gift bag that contained: two books, titled: “The Laurisilva of Madeira, World heritage”, published by the regional goverment and “The eastern Mountainous Massif of Madeira”, published by the Institute who held this contest. Also a t-shirt, a clothes pin from IFCN, IP-RAM and a lanyard from Madeira shopping.

The end of the exhibition was marked with a musical concert by the group “Otus mauli”.
