The Pangea Prize

The Pangea Prize represents a light drop which becomes, as if by magic, the symbol par excellence as the light nourishes photography. A metaphor of perfection, reflection, refraction, for optical lenses and imagination, the future and the world. It also takes on the embrace that the "Siena International Photo Awards" organisers wish to create with the world gathered in Siena during the days of the Festival with photographers from all continents: all together to support the love for images, for the transparency of man acts, for the harmony of light, for the sweetness of colours, for the good and beautiful.
