Aragon: A Time Lapse of the Pyrenees

I got an email this morning from Alfredo Monge, who has been following my internet updates for years. I don´t have the pleasure of knowing him, yet. He was asking me if I could share a recent project of his with my audience. With a group of friends, they devoted a summer to create their first time lapse. Not only because I think they did a great job, but because I am happy to support my region and its beauty. I spent long periods of my youth exploring the different areas of the Aragonese Pyrenees. So a part of my heart will always be there. Enjoy!

KIKE CALVO Mentor Awards



IMPORTANT NOTICE: PLEASE NOTE DEADLINE HAS CHANGED TO MARCH 31

WHY? Many of you asked about my Mentor Award on a regular basis, but I decided to wait. I waited until January 2013 for a reason. 125 years ago, a group of 33 men formed National Geographic. As I type these words, I have spent a week at National Geographic Headquarters in Washington attending the National Geographic Magazine Seminar. The Yellow Border nurtured my dreams since an early age, fulfiling my desires of exploration through its pages. It evolved from a small scientific idea to one of the largest´s scientific and educational organizations in the world. This contest is about dreaming, is about giving many in Latin America, Spain or the Caribbean an opportunity to dream as I did; to thank the region for all their sincere support and love during all these years; and to grant two people, an amazing set of prizes, including the ¨Enrique Calvo In Memoriam Award¨, which will allow someone to travel to New York and learn photography with me for a few days, and receive thousands of dollars in photographic prizes. As I always say, Never Stop Dreaming!!!
