This was the cancellation of all participative events that could be raised, including the we wanted to have taken place in Gijón, which had become a matter of days in a shooting behind closed doors of the master class allotted to have done in a central location next to the beach of San Lorenzo.

Instead we raised the participation in a course of photo and video to which there were a few high-quality works but, as happened with the rest of face-to-face events, the awards presentation ceremony also had to be suspended, deploying trophies to their respective destinations by postal mail.
