Stars in Sport, Nicali Photo Award

New participation record for the Nicali – Iren Photographic Award promoted by Stelle in Sport with the patronage of the Liguria Region, the Municipality of Genoa, Cuneo, Cip and Panathlon. There are 364 photographs in the race, 40 more than in 2021, thanks to an increasingly enthusiastic participation from all over Liguria. Sports shots, passion shots, true acts of love for more than 40 sports.

The album is visible on Facebook and everyone can vote with their own “like” on the photos they find the most exciting.

The competitions and the competitive spirit, the training and the preparation, behind the scenes, the joy of a victory, but also the bitterness of a defeat. The technical gesture in the spotlight, accompanied by moments of prize giving where a medal represents the realization of a dream and the crowning of days, months or years of sacrifice. Finally, after the two long years of pandemic and restrictions, hugs and contacts are back. The main protagonist of this 364-image roundup is basic sporting activity, with its return through competitions in gyms, fields and swimming pools.

Sport for all tastes, with a large participation of families from around the world of Coni, Cip and Special Olympics. The Nicali – Iren Photographic Award offers, once again, the possibility of getting in touch with many sports disciplines. Of all skills, to deliver a strong and inclusive message.
