 19/05/2019.- Finished 29 Memorial María Luisa
La ceremonia de entrega de premios clausuró anoche la 29 edición del Memorial María Luisa. El escenario del evento fue este año uno de los edificios más emblemáticos de la ciudad de Oviedo: el Teatro Filarmónica. Pese a su amplio aforo, apenas fue suficiente para albergar a los cientos de personas que allí se congregaron para homenajear a los galardonados y, a la vez, disfrutar en directo de la obra de los mejores fotógrafos de naturaleza del momento.

Fue una velada inolvidable que congregó a aficionados, premiados y autoridades locales y autonómicas.

Premiados llegados de países tan distantes como Emiratos Árabes, Kuwait, Sri Lanka o China compartieron escenario con galardonados españoles y de diversos puntos de Europa. Todos ellos lograron, por un día, hablar un idioma universal: el de la pasión por la Naturaleza y por el trabajo bien hecho.

Una cena en el Hotel de La Reconquista puso fin a cuatro días de celebraciones.

Nos reencontraremos en la XXX edición...Os esperamos!
