Dear Mr. Shen Che,
It was very nice to meet you in Beijing and participatein the Awards Ceremony of CFPA, as well as in the Forum and Conference of June22. I convey you my sincere thanks and congratulations for the excellent daysand meetings I had the opportunity to attend on behalf of the LiaisonCommittee; it was very great experience for me and I am very enthusiasticrelating to your activities.
Could you please say all my warm thanks to your team; asyou know, I left the meeting too quickly and had no time to thank them and saythem bye bye.
Let us be in touch, waiting to meeting you in Sozopol.
Hoping your NGO will be candidate for the new electedLiaison Committee on December 2014.
With my kind regards,
Dear Mr. Chen,
After a long and tiring trip from Guangzhou, I arrived safely back home in the Netherlands. As we did not say goodbye in person, I really wanted to write a few personal words to you.
I first participated in the HPA in 2006 and won a first prize in the Daily Life category. I was so excited about that message that I could not wait to get to Dazhou. As it took pretty long to get a follow-up message, my impression about HPA and CFPA was not very positive. "What kind of organization is this"? "Are they really serious"? And so on...! Now after two times being treated by the CFPA/HPA I have to apologize for my thoughts. My impression was clearly a wrong one. First in Dazhou in 2007 and now in Guangzhou I had such a great time and was treated as a VIP guest. This all was just possible by your personal energy you put in the whole thing. Please, accept my thanks to you in this.
I will never forget your sweating in these days (...and not only from the temperature in Guangzhou), but I will especially not forget your smile and kind words. I am sure you did a great job for the prizewinners, the HPA, the CFPA and so on, and so on.
I already decided to take part in the next HPA and even if we do not meet in 2011, I will consider you as a good friend and somebody with a great heart for the humanitarian issue and photography in general. The world will look completely different with just a few more people like you!
Mr. Chen, thank you very much again for all your work in this and I am really looking forward to meet again, either in 2011 or whatever moment to come.
I wish you all the best in your work for CFPA/HPA as well as in your personal life.
