NOVO BANCO Revelação

REFLEX - CAIS Photography Award

By merging into one the "CAIS Photography Award", organised by the CAIS Association, and the "A Certain Look" contest, organised by NOVO BANCO, the two institutions forged a partnership in the area of photography and launched the REFLEX Photography Award, a new award aimed at valorising photography in Portugal.

This award not only reinforces the partnership between the two institutions but amplifies the positive impacts on the only initiative in Portugal that allies photography to socially relevant issues. The REFLEX prize thus combines the mission of social commitment of the CAIS Association and the corporate social responsibility strategy of NOVO BANCO as the Patron of Photography in Portugal.


The 11th edition of the REFLEX - CAIS | NOVO BANCO Photography Prize aimed to highlight the reflection on the face of the teachings, the experiences, the achievements, the victories and the defeats that we are collecting, day after day, year after year, along this road which we call life.

The exhibition of the 30 finalist and winning photographs of this edition was shown to the public until 27 January 2018, at Fábrica do Braço de Prata in Lisbon, which were chosen by the jury, composed by Carlos Ramos (photographer), Raul Reis (director of the agency BeNext), Rogério Jardim (publisher of "O Mundo da Fotografia") and Jorge Alexandre Pereira (professor of photography), as well as the article published in december 2017 of CAIS Magazine.

The four best photographs were awarded with NOVO BANCO Prizes with the amount of € 1,000, € 600, € 400 and € 300, respectively:

1st place - Telmo Eduardo Vilas Boas Antunes "Face with History"

3rd place - Luís Sarmento "Memories of a Life"
