JOHN SHERIDAN WINS 9th INTERNATIONAL BEST AUTHOR AWARD FOR 2021

The ASISA Foundation supports culture and diversity has established the largest international salon in Spain. As noted on their website, the ASISAFoto International Photography Contest (ASISAFoto) "has evolved during its 13 editions, incorporating new categories and expanding its borders to encourage the participation of photographers from all corners of the planet.Every year the organization of the contest classifies and evaluates snapshots that, beyond their great quality, tell countless stories that open the door to thousands of stories and different realities. That is why the photo gallery of our certámentes allows us to travel and learn about incredible events, through images of great artistic and narrative quality."

This year, club member, John Sheridan was awarded the Best Author prize bringing him to a hugely impressive grand total of 9 International Best Author wins in 2021. John says "It was an amazing year for me photography wise and being asked to judge the Spanish National Photography League really topped it off for me. Thanks to all the judges and committee members for this award. I am truly honoured."

Although drizzly at times, the weather was perfect for landscape and macro photography. Here is a small selection of images captured on the day.
