For her success Gabriela will receive honourable mention from National Geographic Society headquarter. Her recognition is third for Bulgaria, after honorary prizes from the competition of Magdalena Nikolova in 2009 and Magdalena Valcheva in 2010.
"International photography contest for kids provides an excellent opportunity for the various editions of National Geographic Kids magazine to encourage children around the world to document the reality around them in an attractive and imaginative way", says Melinda Bellows, executive vice president of Division Books, Children and Family editions of National Geographic Society. "Every year the number of the photos and their quality grow; we hope this activity will inspire a lasting love for photography in our readers”.
Over 12 000 is the total number of applied for participation photos in the contest this year. Each of participating countries held a regional round to select the winners in the traditional four categories - "People", "Animals." "Landscape" and "Humour," and selected photos were sent to National Geographic headquarter for the final round jury.
