The purpose of this issue is to photograph the small and large actions that can make a difference at the environmental level and prove that change is possible if we extend our gestures.

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.
