WHAT DO WE DEDICATE YOUR SUPPORT FOR?
We already know that this challenge only covers a 50% of the total amount of edition. The rest, to publish 800 books, we will try to negotiate with corporations and we already have some reservations already made through our website by the own participants. We hope to overcome this amount to cover the total expenses needed:
Printing, bank commissions, Verkami commission, ISBN, correction and translation of texts, graphic design and layout, distribution and shipment.
Our purpose is a short edition, but if we overcome the total amount we would try to print more books.
WHEN WILL WE SEND YOU THE BOOKS?
6 DECEMBER DELIVER DURING THE GALA MONTPHOTO IN LLORET DE MAR, where you are all preferentially invited and we will give you the book on hand.
Books not received during the Gala in Lloret will be sent by mail during the next days, with our compromise to be all delivered before Christmas.
FOR SUPPORT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES
We haven't previewed supporting sending the books outside Spain because the rates are different depending on the country.
To those reservations made abroad, we will contact with them by email once achieved our goal in Verkami, indicating the additional amount to send the books. If once contacted you are not interested in these rates, we will return you the amount of your support, if this had been already done.
WHAT IS MONTPHOTO?
MontPhoto is an innovating, high quality contest where rules are thought to be a link between professional and amateur photographers of nature and general photography. The web format related to new and modern version of our contest becomes a universal and actual format related to contests, adapted to new times and with a future vision that only few contests in the world have already become. The organization was innovative in its application, opening a new field and being pioneers related to divulgation, participation and development of these kind of contests. The principal subject is that participants don’t need to be a simple observers but real users of the contest.
The webpage, www.montphoto.com, pursues two basic functions in the user: on one side, as an exchanging space of images and experiences, a space to learn about and teach from the personal experiences. On the other hand, MontPhoto must use its potential of communication to transmit ethical values and divulgate natural values of our planet.
"There are lots of men and women who, hidden behind the mask, dedicate their life to protect the biodiversity. Men and women who search through the world images who wake up the impulses words cannot achieve. This book is a good example of it. Look, observe, feel what all these fabulous image chasers want to explain you. And act with consequence. After all, is the most fabulous cause we can imagine"
