ENFooCA Awards Arnau Bartrina Luque

ENFooCA Awards Arnau Bartrina Luque accepts proposals from applicants willing to carry out work in the fields of natural photography and video.

Arnau Bartrina Luque was born on 3 March 2004 and lived in Montagut & Oix. He was a curious
young man, full of humility and eager to learn. From a very early age he displayed great interest for his
natural environment. Initially, he focused on birds and at a later age he discovered animal and
landscape photography, which he practiced at ever more advanced level as demonstrated by his
photographic and video content published through his Instagram account @arnaubl2004.

On 15 August 2020, at age 16, Arnau was diligently capturing video of the underwater ecosystem just
off the great beach of Platja d’Aro when a weeder-fish stung him fatally. He tragically suffered an
anaphylactic shock from the venomous sting to his head and neck, from which he died instantly under
the waters of the Mediterranean.

The seed Arnau has left as his legacy is the motivation and commitment to the above values, which the initiative aims to divulge. In this spirit and with this clear objective, Arnau’s close relatives and friends have founded a non-profit organisation to organise and carry out activities and awards in his memory, the ENFooCA Awards Arnau Bartrina Luque.
