Dear friends!

Our competition “Self-isolation of 2020” is not a commercial, we all do on a charitable basis and at their own expense.All competition team, including members of our esteemed jury, the work does absolutely free. All our prizes are provided by the authors of the training courses, (special thanks to them for this). But, it would be doubly pleasant to thank the winners for their work, supporting them financially. In accordance with this, we announce the collection of voluntary donations.

If you are a fan of the creative sphere, have strong feelings for photography, or just want to support talented people – you can donate an amount equal to the price of a cup of cappuccino to the prize fund of our competition. For everyone, this is a trifle, but together we can collect a good reward for the winners.
