Francisco’s winning #Spring2019 shot – Beauty camera

“My name is Francisco and I’m a 25 year old photographer living in Argentina. I have been taking photos since 2010. My favourite kind of photography is landscape however in the last few years I’ve tried out portrait photography.  

I found out about AGORA last year and though which since then I have been sharing my photos with other photographers around the world – that is what makes AGORA an amazing app. It really gives any photographer the chance to share their work with other people. It does not matter if you are just starting or if you are a professional, our passion for photography is what makes everybody equal!

#Spring2019 Hero – Francisco Paez

The guest judge for this Contest has been photographer Benito Linares

#Spring2018 Hero & Guest Judge Benito Linares

We called upon Benito Linares (@benitolinares), last year’s Hero, to lend the Community a hand with choosing his successor!

“My name is Benito and I’m from Cadiz, Spain and I’ve been in love with photography for over 20 years! I try to combine my two greatest pleasures in life: photography and travel. For me they are the perfect match.”

Guest Judge’s selection criteria: “I chose @franciscopaez’s photo in first place because in my opinion, it has the best composition and a the freshest and most original frame and style than the rest of the selection. The colour really pop and really encapsulates what photography is all about in Spring, congratulations!”

On behalf of the entire AGORA Team, congratulations to Francisco Paez for becoming the Hero! 👏🎉

There is a new Hero every week, so don’t forget to check out our previous winners such as the #Green2019 or the #Portraits2019 Heroes.
