The news reached me on October the 27th that I’ve received gold in the International Photography Awards (IPA) in the Special Effects category. After competing for 4 years with a total of 11 Honorable Mentions, bronze (third place), and silver (second place) in the baggage, I finally made it to the top. The award was for the satire artwork New Gods. I’m glad and honored to receive this award.
IPA is a prestigious photography competition based in the USA, Los Angeles. The competition had a total of 13 000 submissions this year.

“I have collected painted art, photo, glass, and sculpture for over three decades—the last ten years as a gallerist and art agent. My firm conviction is that Varro is a name that people should remember. A potential artist with his lens is evident to him. And me.”
