Smernic’s photo was then selected in the top 10 winners. A great achievement for the Sibenik photographer based in Split on the Dalmatian coast.

“Three days before the competition closed I sent four photographs thinking that I did not really have a chance after seeing the other entries. But, after three weeks I got an email which said I have been awarded a prize and that my photo would be published in the December / January NG Traveler global edition,” Smernic told split.com.hr
