About the author

Photographer based in Ourense, Spain.

Interview with the winner

Who are you?

Hi, I’m Novellecao (Jose Antonio), an amateur and self-taught photographer living in Galicia, Spain. My main interest is capturing landscapes, nature, and traditions of my region, although I photograph almost everything. I’m really into classic photography, which is why I’m starting to shoot analog as well.


How would you define your style?

My photographic style is defined as realistic. In my photos, I try to convey the reality of what I see, without excessive filters or retouching. As a self-taught photographer, I learn from all the photos I observe, and I have a great admiration for classic photographers, such as Ansel Adams, who is a major influence for me.


Tell us about your winning creation.

My winning creation for #Wild2023 was captured at an annual event called “A Rapa,” where all the wild horses from an area gather to be dewormed and cared for. The fight between two males to lead the herd adds strength to my creation, making it a potential winner.


Why do you like Agora Awards? 

Agora is a fantastic platform to showcase creators. Its competitions serve as a motivation to improve day by day and strive to become a winner.

About the author

Wildlife Photographer, film-maker, ornithologist, nature conservator, and painter based in Rajshahi, Bangladesh.

Interview with the winner
Who are you?

I’m a 27-year-old photographer from Bangladesh. I live in a small town named Rajshahi by the great Ganges River. I’m mostly interested in nature, especially animals. I always strive to spread awareness through my photos to promote the conservation of nature. My goal is to contribute positively to the planet we all inhabit.


How would you define your style?

My approach to photography is that of a naturalist, and I strive to capture the unfolding events and marvels of the natural world. I pursue this craft for the tranquility it brings to my mind. Through my photographs, I seek to convey an expression that suggests ‘animals too may possess their own narratives to share’. My understanding of both animals and photography was cultivated under the guidance of Mr. Firoz Al Sabah, a renowned wildlife photographer who also embodies remarkable humility.


Tell us about your winning creation.

My winning picture was about a jackal. I’ve known her since 2018 when she was born. She was part of a large clan, but she lost everything due to destruction caused by ignorant humans. That’s why I decided to capture all the major events of her life. I wanted to highlight the simple fact of ‘how ignorantly we are destroying our natural world and whether we can do something to save our planet.’ I believe my photo won the competition because people around the world can connect with the image. I also received a massive amount of support from my family and friends. Most importantly, the photography community on Agora showed great support.


Why do you like Agora Awards? 

I appreciate the Agora Awards because they revolve around what I enjoy the most: photography. The best part is that there are always new challenges available on Agora, which assists me in pushing the boundaries of my photography skills.



#Wild2023 is a Photography Worldwide Award, which consists of two prizes of $1000 each: The People’s Prize and the Jury’s Prize. This award recognizes photographers who capture the beauty of wildlife in its purest and most authentic form.

Can I participate several times in an Award?
Yes, you can participate as many times as you want. However, you will have to use credits to upload more than one creation or wait until the indicated time when the first participation process is over to participate again. We have implemented this method to improve the quality of the participating works, it's an effective way to pre-curate content while providing opportunities for everyone.
How are the finalists chosen
Agora's curators' team chooses the finalist works from among all the participating creations. To make this selection, we take into account several criteria, such as quality, diversity, originality, beauty, the concept behind the creation, the message it conveys, technique, artistic quality, difficulty, social-political-cultural impact, the context and moment of creation, the global interest it has, the cultural value, the author's work, and other specific elements of each Award.
How do I know if I'm a finalist?
If Agora's curator team chooses you among the 25 finalists, you will receive an email from us informing you of this.
What are the prizes?
All awards have two prizes: People’s Prize (whose winner is chosen by Agora users from all over the world) and Jury’s Prize (whose winner is selected by a professional jury specialized in the theme of the award). Each award has a specific prize, which you will find in the information about each award.
How do the People’s Prize voting rounds work?
Once Agora's curator team selects the 25 finalists, they will show them to the public in 5 rounds of 5 finalists each. Each Agora user has 1 vote to choose their favorite creation in each round. In the last round, the 5 most-voted creations of each round (top 5) are submitted to a popular vote. From this final votation, we get the award's winner.
What are the credits for?
The credits are used to participate in the awards with more than one creation without having to wait for the time limitations to be removed. They can be purchased by clicking on the “credits” icon in your profile.
