During the month of July 2021, the 29th Biennial of France 2021 was failed. The result has not arrived until this month and with excellent news. One of the Spanish teams has achieved the FIAP Gold Medal in the Color category thanks to the series ‘La Vía Láctea’. The other Spanish team that was presented has been in position 20 of 42 countries presented.

The Biennial of France is a contest organized by FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique), an international organization of national photography associations. In Spain this position is held by the CEF (Spanish Confederation of Photography).

As its name suggests, it is celebrated every two years changing the theme: even-numbered years for the Biennials of Black and white and Nature, odd-numbered years for the Biennial of Colour.

And this year two Spanish teams have participated in the category of Colour, one dedicated to the portrait and the other to the Milky Way. And they have achieved an excellent result.

The awarded photographs

The CEF It first called an internal competition among all its partners and with the finalists they organized the two collections. On this occasion the portraitists have remained in a creditable 20th place. And the night photographers have achieved the runner-up and the Gold medal.

The absolute champion has been the British team that has won the World Cup, above our selection with a job dedicated to the cold winter landscapes.

The portrait team consists of:

The F8 rule in documentary, street or travel photography: what it is and how to make the most of it

Congratulations to all the participants of a contest with a very high level. Surely all the photographs attract your attention. The bad luck is that the milky way season is over … We will wait for next year.
