There are great news that I want to share with everybody. On November 2014 the European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) organized a photography competition entitled Azerbaijan – Sport in Focus, aimed at both professional and amateur photographers. The photo competition was judged by world-renowned photographers Ed Kashi, Philipp Rathmer and Agdes Baghirzade. The top three images were selected by a panel of leading photographers from 300 entries, received from ten different countries. These images will feature as part of the exhibition in London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul and Baku. So the great news is that my photo of the Formula 1 pilot entitled "Final Instructions" have won the 3rd prize. Moreover, all my four photos have retained the attention of the jury, and they have also been selected for the exhibition and I was invited by the organizers to attend the launch of the exhibition at the OXO Gallery in London on the February 27th 2015. It would be great to meet with all my friends in UK. If you are in London and have some time, come to the OXO Gallery, will be happy to see you all! By the way, here are the winner images!
