The exhibition of the winning works and the awarding of prizes to the winners of the 23rd Portimão Photographic Race, held this year in person and online, is scheduled for December 9th, starting at 5pm, at the Portimão Museum.
This initiative, integrated into the City Day celebrations, saw the registration of 157 photography lovers in the two modalities, not only from the Algarve, but from various parts of the country and ten nationalities, giving a strong international dimension to the event.
During the face-to-face test, which took place in the Municipality of Portimão on May 20th, participants had the opportunity to creatively record three photographs on each of the eight themes proposed and delivered throughout the day, about cultural and natural heritage, experiences , people, social work and leisure environments.
In addition to the in-person format, encouraging participants to travel and discover the territory of the municipality of Portimão, this year the organization also intended to continue online participation.
