A whole month to spend in Rome developing a photographic project and immortalizing the city that made the history of civilization, its most representative monuments and its hidden corners.
It is the coveted prize won by Julieta Pestarino, who gained the IILA-PHOTOGRAPHY victory, a contest dedicated to the best shots of Latin American under 35 photographers, in collaboration with the Italian-Latin American International Organization.
The final project by Julieta Pestarino will be presented during the next edition of the Award, as happened this year for Leticia Bernaus (Argentina), winner in 2018 with La vida secreta de las piedras (2018).
Very dear to IILA, as a UN Observer, the theme of this XI edition of the Award, Uguaglianza di genere (Gender Equality), was inspired by one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that are part of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda: number 5, which aims to achieve gender equality and promote the empowerment of all women and girls.
