“Obiettivo Venezia” has been an unexpected success! 119 photographers in the category of Murano glass, participated to the 1st international photo contest “Obiettivo Venezia”, organized by Consorzio Promovetro and Comune di Venezia.

417 pictures representing the one thousand years old glass art, the glass working tradition, the products, but also less the known aspects and places of the island and its marvellous monuments.

The “Murano Glass” images are part of the 3000 pictures, taken by the more than 500 photographers participating to the contest.

 

A great and unexpected success, of which we are very proud” – says Luciano Gambaro, President of Consorzio Promovetro –

Some of these pictures are really beautiful and we are looking for to know the results and decision of the judges.

These pictures will be used to promote the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark and our daily fight against counterfeit glass products. We’d like to thank all professional or amateur photographers who participated to the contest and Venice City council.

 

Consorzio Promovetro is also creating the 5 glass awards, for the first two photographers placed in each category and for the winner of the special “web award”. These are going to be Murano glass plaques realised through the fusing technique and decorated by hand. They are characterised by the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark and they represent the contest’s logo: a camera.

The pictures of “Murano glass” session are available on our facebook pages:
