The international photography competition “RAMOGE – L’Homme et la Mer” is one of the 2020 events that has taken place without a hitch.
On the occasion of World Oceans Day on Monday 8 June 2020 the contest launched.
Competition was intense and by the time this prestigious championship closed its doors to entrants at the end of September 2020 it had broken records for participation.
Something quite exceptional in this year which will go down in history for its exceptional challenges.
