Loup describes one of his more recent international
projects: “Last year my good friend, Pablo Corral, and
I created the POYi-LatAm (Pictures of the Year
International-Latin America) contest for Latin
American photojournalists and editors It quickly
became the largest and most prestigious
photojournalism contest in Latin America There
were more than 800 entrants with some 11,000
images The judges included top professionals and
educators from Germany, Spain, Argentina, Mexico,
the U S and Brazil The winning images can be
viewed on the nuestramirada org site We plan to
hold the contest once every two years, and have
overtures from Brazil to do the judging next March in
Rio de Janeiro ”
