Very impressive ones." - says Derek Galon, competitions chairman - and himself winner of dozens of international awards. "From time to time I get invited to sit in jury of different salons and competitions, therefore I have a chance of seeing thousands photos – including the best world photographs of the
highest caliber. And what I saw among entries of our salon was simply wonderful."
