It’s searching for photos born out of the passion and from the author’s deep sensitivity: the result from a need to express feelings through the image, a unique view of the surrounding reality. We seek to find artists and unique souls who breathe and live for creativity. Creative Photo Awards aims to be a perfect instrument, which allows a person to communicate with the world and share their vision.

  1. It really is a lovely series. The characters are great and it just makes you feel good after watching it. Something we all need right now. They did an OVA film that I would love to see but it never got licensed outside of Japan. I would love to see that as well. Ilene
