Participants in the International Underwater Photography Contest, Fotosub 2015, described as successful the event, which will conclude on Sunday on Cayo Guillermo, in Jardines del Rey.
Alejandro Salazar, a member of the jury and the director of Mexican magazine “Espacio Profundo”, told Prensa Latina about the excellent conditions and seascapes in that north-central Cuban region.
“I have participated in several events in the island and I think it is important that the contest moves to other Cuban sites, because it will allow taking photos of unique underwater beauties and those images travel the world,” he stated.
Salazar talked of the importance of promoting those treasures lying on the sea bed, so that people can admire them and love them and automatically start to preserve them, because no one really protects what they do not love.
For his part, Manuel Carmenate, a Cuban photographer of great experience, stated that the meeting gave him the possibility to take photos of a very rich and beautiful fauna because, in addition to enjoying a good dive, we can take excellent images.
FOTOSUB takes place as a preamble to the International Fair on Tourism, FITCuba 2015, which will be dedicated to nautical products and the Italian market, and will be held in Jardines del Rey from May 5-7.
