All the 2019 awards: 5th CVCEPHOTO
The picture ‘Top of Africa’ is a spectacular photography taken at Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania). In the image we can see Canadian climber, Will Gadd, as he ascends one of the last remnants of the rapidly disappearing glaciers on this mountain. Apart from being visually striking, it also makes us think about one of the biggest issues nowadays: climate change.
The official poster of the 12th edition of the Mendi Film Festival based on this photograph will be unveiled on Monday, June 24, as part of the presentation of the new era of the Mendi Film Festival, in the Sala BBK, in Bilbao.
